Gravity tap at Northwich Beer Festival 2013. Tasted like out of date coca cola and gone off coffee, disgusting a gusher

larsga (7155) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 17, 2013
Medium beige head. Nearly opaque black body goes deep dark brown at edges. Earthy cocoa aroma with prunes notes. Dry-sweet roasty earthy caramel taste with burned notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish earthy floral herbal aftertaste with salty roasty notes. It’s ok, but low on flavor and just not that good. (0.5l bottle, from House of Trembling Madness, York.)
