Cask at the Express, deep red-black with a tight tan head and a coffee and dark fruit nose. Smooth, dry-sweet and lightly roasty, a faint plummy tartness counterpointing note of milk chocolate, blackberries and a dry bitterness. Very nice.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2015
Feb 2015 - Gravity cask at Bree Louise. Dark cola brown, small bubbly brown head doesn’t endure. Aroma is soft coffee, some berry fruit. Body is medium to light, watery and smooth, no carbonation. Taste is watery but has some ash, toffee, a little coffee. Listed on Ratebeer as a bitter, but there is no bitterness whatsoever here. This is a mild in my book. Drinkable, but a little insipid. (2.9)
June 2015 - Cask handpull at the Wibbas Down. Thought this sounded familiar! I won’t bother with all my notes, but the taste this time was toffee, molasses and twig. I got a better impression this time round - better condition I guess. (3.2)

Cask at CASK. It pours deep brown with a decent beige head. The nose is smooth roast, earthy, wood, toasty, liquorice, umami and coffee grounds. The taste is smooth, earthy, toasty, ashy, dark fruits, coffee grounds and wood with a dry finish. Light-medium body. More of mild than a bitter. Well-rounded and rather drinkable.

Cask gravity at Reading BF 2014. Can’t believe I have never had this before. Clear very dark brown lasting beige head. Chocolate coffee yeast aroma. Some malt some wateryness it’s probably not in the best condition. Distinctly average.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at the Row Barge, Guildford. Poured a dark mahogany with a minimal frothy head, but lots of lace. A hint of maltiness in the aroma leading to a citrus peppery bitterness in the flavour. Quite an unusual beer and well worth tasting.
