Scopey (6812) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2014
Cask at Clockwork. It pours deep amber with a medium beige head. The nose is brown bread, earth, nut, dried berry, toast and malt loaf. The taste is earth, brown bread, toast, dried fruit, berry, light caramel, fruity tartness and fruit cake with a dry, toasty finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. A superior dark ale. Rather nice.
