3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask gravity at Reading BF 2011. Smells of blackcurrant. Like Ribena and blackcurrant Angel Delight. Blackcurrant vanilla in mouth. Quite pleasant but not sure where the fruit has cone from. Fine if fruitily odd

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Gravity cask at the Bree Louise. Dark, clearish brown pour with a light film. Sweet, currant and grape nose. Definite blackcurrant character in the flavor, nice and sweet, with modest roasty malts. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation. More roast, though mild, in the finish, with some sugars and lingering fruit notes. A really interesting, tasty and dynamic beer.
