Dark brown with a small creamy head. Little aroma with some malt and caramel. Big sweet flavour dominated by the malt and only with a hint of bitterness at the end. And a perfect version of that creamy, silky cask mouthfeel Rune (13361) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 6, 2007
Pint served at perfect room temperature at the Lamb, London. Filmy off-white layer over a mahogany coloued body. Nice lacing on the glass. Roasted malty aroma. Taste of warming caramel malts. Moderate bitter ending. A bit watery. Half of the content was enjoyed with Fish ’n Chips (31.01.2007). mR_fr0g (13158) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2013

Bull, Streatham, London (drunk in a comfy leather armchair next to a roaring open fire) - Pours a dark brown colour with a persistent frothy head and lacing. Dark roasted toasty malts, nutty, rich dark fruits, christmas cake like, some spice, slight caramel/toffee/choc, good mouthfeel. Almost back to as good as I remembered back in the early 90s (and certainly much better than over the last 5 years I have tried it)
Cask @ Ølbaren: Burgundy coloured. Unclear. Fluffy brownish head. Floral, herby and light fresh aroma. Flavour as well is herby and has light caramel notes. Is a bit flat (it has to be, hasn’t it!!!). Is quite fruity in the end. Very bitter notes.

Dark reddish brown colour with small off-white head.
Sweetness, dark fruits, toasted malt, some spices and some liquorice in aroma. Flavour is sugar, dark fruits, molasses, mild hops, toasted malt and some spices.
Ruby coloured ale with a nice creamy head. Plenty of winter fruitiness in both aroma and taste, somewhat dry in the latter aspect. Fin (10821) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2008
Cask at the Kings Arms, Holywell Street, Oxford 20-02-08 Oxford City CAMRA meeting Dark amber colour with some fruit and nut’s on the aroma. This was quite fruity and nutty in the mouth as well and rather enjoyable served in very good nick, lovely beer. JorisPPattyn (10062) - BELGIUM - JAN 30, 2007
Cask Pretty sure this one was still Wandsworth brewed, FTR. Dark chestnut with garnet highlights; B.C. "H.". Fruity, dark malts, a few meaty esters, and some acetic acid... Mild sweet taste, quite fruity, as cherries, ending in a kind of sweetness that is peculiar to this type of beer. Muscovado? Candy. Medium bodied, quite slick, alcohol-dryness (as the "tears" on a sherry glass). Enjoying the last of the real stuff? gunnar (9405) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JAN 10, 2014
Cask at Founders Arms. pours clear dark brown with a small beige head. Aroma is malty, light roasted, light toffee. Taste is malty, toffee, with some more dark red ripe fruits at the finish. Nice enough, but a bit thin mouthfeel
