Bottled. Deep rubyish brown, close to black colour with a small beige head. Aroma is liquorice, some caramel malts, mild roasted malts, rather rich on toffee and also shows some mild chocolaty notes. Flavour is chocolate, roasted malts, mild liquorice and some dark fruityness. Also the toffeeish notes show up in the flavour as the beer gets a bit warmer. cgarvieuk (26365) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 26, 2010
Bottle at home ... dark brown ... bubbly tan head ... sweet toffee malts ... little coffee ... quite nutty nose ... big rounded body (for a bottle) very nutty ... nice soft roast ... this isnt half bad ... Leighton (22812) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2011
Bottle at home in London. Pours rich, red-brown with a big, clingy, light beige head. Aroma holds earth, light dark fruits, rocks. Flavor is lightly sweet and somewhat bland. Very light toast and roast, some sugar, bread. Light bodied with high, massaging carbonation. Slight minerals in the finish, very modest roast, some chalk, faint earthy bitterness, bare hints of cocoa. The lack of character is impressive. Still, easy drinking

500ml bottle from Waitrose. Very very dark black dark ruby, with a disappearing beige head. It’s a decent mild. Some choc, some smoothness, it is half decent very mild and reasonably full. Very drinkable. Oakes (19409) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 3, 2010
Bottle, Waitrose. Very dark brown. Aroma mixes nice dark sugars and nuts, with light fruitiness. Soft acidity, light dark malts. Hints of raisins. MiP (16054) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 7, 2015
Bottle, 3.9%. No aroma as far as I can tell. Clear shiny dark chestnut colour. Small frothy off-white head. The flavour is watery with a hint of sweet liquorice. Fruity and watery finish. Tastes all right, but is very thin, even considering its ABV. bhensonb (15967) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 15, 2013
Bottle from the Edgeware Road Waitrose. Pours rather dark brown with a transient tan head. Aroma suggests a fruity porter. Near medium body. Flavor is very smooth dark malt with some nuttiness and conflicting fruit/citrus? hop. Here, I think, the whole is more than the some of the parts. This is fairly strong in flavor. Finishes neutral on sweet/dry. Drinks great.imdownthepub (15519) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2013

Bottle. Pours very dark brown with a foamy beige head. Nutty, chocolate aroma. Mildy sweet chocolate flavor, with some light nuttiness. The flavor is better than the description. It’s quite pleasant.
Bottled, 500ml from Waitrose, Witney. Black with cream head. Thinner than the cask version, there is still a darkly roasted malt though but masked a little by a wet cardboard type flavour, some fruitiness. Lacks some depth. Average.

Bottled, 500ml from Morrisons in Banbury. Black with brown head. Smooth and fruity flavours, some liquorice and hints of chocolate amalgamate into a very decent bottled mild. Easy drinking while retaining flavours.
