Theydon_Bois (18427) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, - OCT 16, 2013
Cask at the Cask, Pimlico, 16/10/13. Mid black with a good sized tan head. Nose is roast malts, dark toffee, fruity twang, light cocoa. Taste comprises berry fruti, light roast, earthy cocoa. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, light roasty tones at the curtain call. Looks and feels good, doesnt hold much depth and no real discerning cherry flavours. Drinkable enough though.

Mishnok (213) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2016
From 500ml bottle. Creamy head disappeared quickly after pouring. Dark with ruby hints. Taste is of roasted malts with bitter. I couldn't pick up much cherry. Body is a little watery. Acceptable, but I've had better stouts. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2015
Cask at Ye Old Elm Tree, Durham, 3.40/pint. Ruby black beer with a thick, cream-coloured head. The nose has the cherries promised but unfortunately they are largely eclipsed in the flavour by a rather over the top smoky character that masks all else. Not great.

StueyD (1579) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2015
A pitch black beer with a frothy but weak tan coloured head. A light aroma, dark malt elements like burnt sugar, nutty, smoky then a red fruit aroma that suggests cherries. Medium dry and slightly thinner than expected mouthfeel. The taste starts off with a smooth and sweet malt flavour, dark caramel and chocolatey, that leads in a ripe jammy, red fruit flavour, definitely cherry plus plum and raisiny dried fruit. Then a dry nutty, woody and slightly smoky flavour comes through towards the end. The finish is dry nutty with a sweetish caramel fruit background. Bottle from the Maris Otter 50 Beer Festival, Norwich.

Cask at GBBF 2015. Black with a high, airy head. Roasty nose, chocolate, coffee, and maybe just a hint of cherry. Soy sauce. A bit weak overall, without much cherry at all.
