Leighton (23090) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2017
Cask at the Hamilton Hall, JDW - London. Pours clear, rich brown with reddish hints and a creamy, tan head. The aroma holds tangy berries, toasted brown bread, nips of earth. Light sweet flavour with fairly prominent lightly tangy dried dark berries, more brown bread, faint toffee. Finishes with further ripe, dried dark berries, mellow earthy bitterness, basic brown bread. So so overall. BlackHaddock (8073) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2017
Half-pint in my local Wetherspoon’s on 9th June 2017. Dark brown with a good head that gave some impressive lacing. Bramble fruits, hedgerow fruits and berries in both the nose and taste. Liked it. BeerViking (5192) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2017

UPDATED: MAY 18, 2017 Pours a dark red brown colour with a foamy off light beige head. Aroma is malt and fruit, bread, some toffee, raisins and plum. Quite sweet, plenty of rich dark fruit, raisin, prune and some bready malt flavours and a light mild bitterness in the finish. theprof (1457) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2017
Cask. Aroma fruit vinegar malts. Appearance is dark ruby with tan lacing. It tastes better than it smells with dark fruits and roasted malts dominant to produce a medium sweet ale with a soft finish. Carbonation is light to flat and there is a slightly oily finish on the palate. Perfectly adequate in a world where adequate is not enough.

Cask handpull at The William Morris Hammersmith as Wolf Woild Moild. Dark reddy brown, still with a foamy light brown head. Aroma is bready, wet wood, red apple. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is fig biscuit, light papery astringency, sugary and wholemeal bread crusts with some gluey notes. An ok mild. john44 (3510) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2017
