Pigs Ear. Clear dark brown beer. Dry palate particularly the finish which is very dry. Otherwise well balanced dark malt and tangy dark orange and plums. Not too bitter.

Dark, small tight creamy head. Slightly spicy clove aroma. Coffee roast in the mouth. Fullish palate, but very refreshing and sessionable.

Cask-conditioned at the Sussex beer festival, Seven Stars, Bristol 4/1/2011. Deep brown with a slight, off-white head. Aroma of dark fruit and liquorice with a touch of roasted malt. Sweetish malt flavour, with coffee, chocolate and a dryish finish. Enjoyable.

Cask (gravity dispense) at Pigs Ear Beer Festival, 2 December 2009. Chestnut colour. Dry and clean. Some roasty, sharp, slightly burnt notes and berry fruit. Pleasant drinking with decent depth and length. Firm, but supple, mouthfeel.

Cask at the market porter. Alround rating: Alot of roasty malt, coffee, bitter, not very good mix of flavours for me.

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2008 A Sim rate &#40;gravicask at Hop Farm Fest&#41;: Rosemary and pine aroma. Itís not only winter, but itís summer too! Hoppy, fresh. Delightful. Hoppy flavour but too bitter. Slight spice. Three point two. ***ReRateMesRate*** Mahogany black with a thin tan head. Like a milk stout with a hint of liquorice and I agree completely with Alex, a hint of Baileys. good biscuity malt base and a lovely bitter chocolate finish.

Cask gravity at SIBA BF, Paddock Wood. Very dark brown with thin beige head. Attractive old ale aroma. I’d say it’s an old ale style, bit of sourness on excellent smooth herb and dark choc. Lots of herby hop on finish. It’s awesome, such a lovely old ale. Espresso coffee and bitter choc.
