Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Poured a murky dark brown with a frothy off white head. The aroma is malt, spice, acid red berry fruit. The flavour is medium to strong bitter with a crisp, acid fruit spice hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation.

Garrold (1336) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2014
Bottle from Beer Central, Sheffield. Clear, dark red. Thick, sticky, lasting, off white head. Light liquorice. Apple like, fruity hop. Taste is dark fruit sweet. Lots of dryness. Palate has a little chew. Finishes bitter, and light dry. Nice brown ale.

Hazy mahogany, smallish cream head. Nutty dusty layered malt aroma, some orange and piney hops. Lots of cara crystal burned sweetness, nutty, followed by plenty of hop. Good mouthfeel, smooth, slick, lasting bitter. Not bad, would like more malt complexity though, more toasty biscuit.

Keg at the Hanging Bat. Pours London Murk, thin off-white head. Aromas are all toffee, caramel, light nuttiness. Taste brings a light bitterness,but mostly about the toffee. Sweet finish. OK.

Idiosynkrasie (3815) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 15, 2014
330ml bottle [6.4% abv]. Hazy brown colour with late awakening, average to huge, thick, frothy, fairly lasting and lacing, beige head. Slightly earthy, woody, and grassy, nuttily aroma, hints of hazelnut, Brazil nut, some moss, mushrooms, chlorophyllic hoppy overtones. Taste is nuttily malty, bitter hoppy overtones with a cautious fruity touch (maybe lemon and orange zest), less earthy and woody than the aroma, hints of hazelnut and a touch of peanut. Slightly inharmonic, unbalanced, disintegrated.
