Cask at the Express Tavern, deep red with a fine head and a faintly winey and woody nose. On the palate it’s dry-sweet, rich and complex, with roasty malt, a touch of coffee, some earthy bitterness and a hint of dark dry cocoa. scotty (1199) - SCOTLAND - APR 12, 2006
Cask @ Standing Order,Derby. Delicious beer,packed with crunchy roast malt flavours, and a very satisfying hoppy bitterness. Looks fab too, typically dark with a good whitish head. Went well with my Sunday roast lunch at this busy JDs. A wee bit stronger than most milds, but still a great example, very smooth and moreish. Must teach the wife to drive so I could have more than a pint when I find a crackin’ beer like this. oh6gdx (26482) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 6, 2009
’s, Helsinki. Amber colour, mediumsized beige head. Aroma is wood, some caramel and some mild nuttyness. Flavour is quite strong nuttyness, caramel malts, some slight toffeeish notes as well as slight grassy and wooden notes. Very pleasant flavour.
