BlackHaddock (6554) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2016
Half-pint, hand-pulled on 30th Sep 2016 at The Crown Inn, Oakengates. Dark brown with a red hue, tanned topping. Smooth bodied, slick almost, aroma and taste had hedgerow fruits in a malty pot; a trace of hop bitterness in the finish. Decent.

jmgreenuk (8014) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - SEP 4, 2016
Cask at Ale Caesar, Margate. Poured a clear reddish brown with little life. The aroma is roasty malt, dry coffee, light spice. The flavour is moderate liqourice bitter with a smooth, flavourful, roasty, light dry liqourice, light hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

Cask @ GBBF 2014. Deep brown pour with a small head. Nose of cherry cola. Baked bread. Raisin and milk chocolate. Similar flavor. Lightly tart / sweet red fruit skin. Earthy toastiness. Just a bit sweet. Light body, a bit dull on the tongue. Solid.

imdownthepub (13558) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2016
Cask conditioned at The Albion, Cromer, Norfolk. Very dark brown with cream head. There was a medicinal tone to this along with full roasty malts, some sweetness and a light nuttiness. Lingering palate, fullish. Its okay.

alfa (14) - Canterbury, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2016
One of my favourite beers of the moment. Almost black, strong aroma and initial taste of soft liquorice which surrenders to dark malt and light hops. Fades a bit on the palette but V Nice and involves dangerously short time to the second pint.

Cask at GBBF. Dark brown or black, small foamy tan head. Aroma is liquorice, potent sweet blackcurrant. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is plummy, soft ash in the finish. Good mild. Nice rounded fruit-led flavour. Interesting.
