Cask (Buttermarket, Canterbury)
Rich aroma, a bit roasty. Nice reddy brown, small head. A touch of kidney in places. Some sweet roasty malts in the body. Lots of resiny bitter hops kick in for the late finish. Early finish was a good dark roast. Nice one. Look forward to others.

Fin (10542) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2011
Cask, gravity at The Honeypot, Oxford, 03.12.11 when stewarding for Mabel Gubbins anniversary longsword/rapper dancing event This is indeed really quite chocolatey and malty, also very smooth, some light creamy chocolate on the nose. Perhaps served just a tad warm, otherwise it is a decent pint. A6 A4 T7 P4 Ov14 3.4

Leighton (21296) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2012
Cask at the Lord Aberconway, Nicholson’s, London. Labeled as "XT 8 Dark Roast". Pours clear, red-brown with a tight, tan cap. Toasty malt nose with some burnt milk chocolate. Light sweet flavor with toasty bread and leaves, mild cocoa, some dirt. Light in body with fine, creamy carbonation. Decent bitterness in the finish, with modest burnt earth, mild baking cocoa, mild roast, some burnt sugars and burnt grass. Fine stuff.

jmgreenuk (9457) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JAN 17, 2013
Cask at The Anchor, Birmingham. Poured a nice dark brown colour with a reddish hue and a frothy tan head. The aroma is rich fruity and surprisingly alcoholic. The flavour is medium bitter and follows the aroma with some nice smooth liquorice bitterness on the palate. A lovely heart warming beer. Ideal for consumption in front of a lovely open fire in the wintertime.

mzaar (3463) - Varberg, SWEDEN - APR 24, 2013
Fat @ Abbotsford, Edinburgh. Mörkt rödbrun med smutsvitt skum. Tämligen svaga dofter för en brown ale, men där hittas mörk choklad, röda bär och en nötighet. Smakar bra. Smakar mörk choklad, vanilj, svag fruktighet. Gräddig och len munkänsla.
