Cask Stillage from the Cellar at the Prince Of Wales, Foxfield 12/03/2011
Fruity aroma. Dark coloured and a little rich on the palate with some spicy liquorice flavour. A hint of dryness in a bitter roast finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask (gravity dispense) at Reading Beer Festival, 30 April 2009. Dark brown with a ruby tinge. Something unusual here that I canít quite identify. Ah - D&B stands for dandelion & burdock, thatíll explain it. Itís quite restrained but definitely there. Also berry fruit on the palate but finishes dry and slightly ashy. I canít stand dandelion & burdock so, even if the influence is subtle and the beer competently made, I canít say I found it particularly appealing.

Bottle. Thisis now my nearest brewery and this is my first experiece of one of their beers. Light brown with some maltiness and a medium body. Quite powerful for its strength and rather distinctive. Hope all their other beers are as pleasant as this one. Well bottled as well.

Cask gravity at Reading BF 09. Very very dark brown. Quite lasting beige head. Vinous dark fruity aroma. A little rubbery maybe. Good blackberry blackcurrant fruit throughout. A bit of tar, but I like the cab sauv qualities.
