Beese (1837) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2014
Draught at BrewDog Shepherd’s Bush on 16 September. Poured a thick, pitch black, with a thin tan head. Big aroma of blackberries, dark fruit and big malt. Mouthfeel was really thick and syrup like. Complex flavours of berries, sherbet, dark chocolate and black cherry. More cherry in the finish, with burnt sugar, pastry, straw and dried fruit.

jamestulloch (1406) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 6, 2014
Bottle, shared with Andrew. Black body with no head or lacing. Aroma of treacle, whisky and salted caramel. Flavour of sweet treacle and raspberry syrup. Strong alcohol. Medium body with a slick, oily texture. Soft carbonation prickle. A complex beer but it tastes a bit too boozy for my liking.
