COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask & bottled conditioned - Special.
Collaboration between Arbor Ales, Bath Ales, Bristol Beer Factory, Great Western Brewing, RCH & Zero Degrees for the 2012 Bristol Beer Festival.
EDITOR’S NOTE: The cask version was brewed at RCH Brewery. The bottled version comes from Bristol Beer Factory, which is specified on the label. Whether a separate batch was brewed at Bristol Beer Factory for bottling, or some of the batch brewed at RCH was shipped to Bristol Beer Factory for bottling is not 100% clear. Either way, the cask and bottled versions are the same beer.

Rune (7760) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 4, 2012
500ml bottle shared with Magne and Per at The Queens Head. Tan-coloured head to a cloudy, dark brown coloured body. Spotty lacing. Smell of oak, malts and resin. Blended flavour of dark malts and resinous hops. Bittersweet coffee ending. Ashy dry in the mouth. Decent stout (London, 23.11.2012).

Beersiveknown (2742) - NORTHERN IRELAND - NOV 25, 2012
Bottle at home from bitter virtue.
Dark ruby thick bodied porter with fluffy beige head. Barely any nose, medium bodied with low carbonation. Rich chocolate and molasses, touch of astringency. Long bitter finish.

500ml bottle Cotteridge Wines B30. A pleasant drink. Sweet, with perhaps a taste of smoke if you search hard.

zacgillbanks (2099) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2012
Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. An inky black beer that pours with a thick creamy tan head. It has slight sour red fruity and chocolate flavours followed by light smoke on the finish. Really Good!

FatPhil (9007) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 1, 2012
500ml bottle (Queen’s Head, London)
Lovely smoky aroma. Full palate. Dry burnt roast, but just shy of astringent. Full and roasty finish. Solid slightly-smoked porter.

RichardGretton (4222) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2012
Bottle. Black beer with a reddish tinge and a strong light brown head. The aroma is solidly roasted and the flavour is bitter with roasted coffee notes. Overall a very nice roasted coffee flavoured beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cask conditioned handpump Harp London 23/07/12. A black beer with a whitish head and lacing. Definitely more porterish than smoked in every way. In fact a bit sweet and veggy in the mouth. Smooth and tasty character. Pretty nice.
