LeighExceptional01 Jun 2009 York's best beer by a mile. Wonderfully balanced for it's strength - roasted coffee and chocolate flavours, with a smooth finish. Strong - but doesn't taste it!

Martin the MildmanExcellent29 Aug 2009 A complex strong dark beer, like a strong mild with toffee malt flavours and a little hoppiness. Full bodied and rich tasting. My score 16/20.

The Churchill Tavern, Ramsgate, Kent

BlairExcellent27 Nov 2008 Lovely dark ale. Rich and chocolatey with nice malt. Really good stuff.

The Harvest Moon, Orpington, Greater London

DubbelExcellent20 Nov 2008 Thick, gloopy black ale with a persistent white head. Liquorice notes force themselves through the roasted barley and a classic bitter hop finish entices a rapid follow-up gulp. Not a bad substitute!
