Scopey (6711) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2014
Cask gravity at Craft 100. It pours deep brown with a medium beige head. The nose is roasted malt, toast, cocoa, coffee and treacle. The taste is roasted malt, toast, mild acidity, coffee, ash, toast, pine, varnish and grapefruit with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Alright, but not a whole lot to it. Decent enough hoppy stout.
