Smells of chocolate and fruity vanilla. Almost see through but very dark brown in colour. Clean and flat on the tongue. Really pleasant tasting.

Had on cask in Philadelphia at cellar temp. Almost no aroma, but a great caramel and estery taste. If you see this beer on cask, get it.

Cask Conditioned, Red Lion, Cropredy. Dark Red brown colour, thin head. Strong on roased Malt with some bitterness but it is the full fruity nut and smoky flavour that pulls it through. Apologies to all that have to drink the pasteurised bottled version which has little of the character left.

Maybe I was just excited because it was my first cask, but the head was marvelous! I scooped it with a fork and swallowed it. It was way better than the bottled version, sweet and nutty like a brown ale. good stuff, at the Abbey in Miami Beach

On tap at the Moon & Six in Perth AU. Dark brown with a light long lasting head. Lovely malty flavours, slightly bitter finish. This was a really tasty pint. Well worth the visit.

Cask at "Bridge", Heathrow Terminal 4. Clear mahogany with a creamy light brown head that stays as a thich film that lasts and leaves excellent lacing. Dried fruits, apricot jam, tobacco and toffee malt notes abundantly present on the nose. Malty and toffee sweet, elegantly balanced against hoppy bitterness and a hint of acidity. Smooth to drink and flatish. Medium bodied and finishes dry. I love this stuff!

This beer varies a lot - sometimes great, sometimes awful. Used to drink in Southampton in Cask form.
