harrisoni (13564) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2005
Cask at County Hotel (JDW) Ashford, I certainly agree with SilkTork’s 2nd review when experienced as cask. Dark ruby in colour, the nose is chocolate and toffee in nature, with some coffee. Strangely over carbonated on the mouthfeel, but the finish is excellent with good chocolate malt. Slightly grainy and roasted, but I really liked it. Definitely worth having a 2nd pint
