IanExcellent29 Mar 2008 I had this on cask at the old strength in the Guildford Arma, Edinburgh and it was one of the beers of the RBESG 07 for me, so I was interested in this. Black, ruby hints, thin tan head. This is still a tasty beer with smoky charcoal and tarry malts. Good fullness in mouth. Aroma is excellent. Good fruit in mouth. Decent stinging finish. Rounded juicy charcoal in mouth. Excellent.

IanExcellent24 Aug 2007 Softer in cask that in bottle. Tarry, good espresso, great mouthfeel. Really rather good. NIce tarry bitter finish. A lot wider in the mouthfeel than the oilier bottled beer. Great to find this on cask.

CharlesExcellent08 Mar 2006 Been meaning to try this and it was excellent. Really chocolatey with slightly hoppy and almost brandy like flavour coming through.
