imdownthepub (9954) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2010
Cask conditioned at Fleetwood Beer Fest 2010. Black with tan head. First impressions are of stick liquorice, dark roasty and tarry, reasonably smooth but challenging, then comes through a slight tannin note, tea like and leafy just to give it a lighter edge. Good dark roasted, chocolate malts, heavy on the palate. Well constructed and brewed.
