Cloudy rust coloured, huge head of foam despite being pulled from the fridge and poured carefully. Bitter hops and sourness in the smell. Very bitter starting off, moves to the sour side, actually goes back and forth during the session, with some funky notes thrown in Champagne like carbonation doesn’t help. I don’t see any dating of any sorts on the bottle. Weird drinking experience.

500 ml bottle from Beermongers. Pours a somewhat cloudy orange color with a large white head. lots of slow gushing on this one so be careful. The aroma is barnyard straw and fruit. A big soft bretty flavor, berries, light sugary malts. Very funky. An interesting brett sweeter IPAish beer. Good.

Bottle: Cloudy, light, opaque brown with a huge, vanilla-white head. Toffee, fruit, mild oxidation scent. Fruitcake, apple, spice, grain malt..... Creamy, dried fruit, yeast taste. Pretty good, but perhaps a bit stale.

Cask@Devonshire Arms, Burton. Dark amber beer with a small head. Aroma of caramel and malts. Taste is malty, caramel and a touch of alcohol warmth. Decent.

Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 3, 2013
Caramel infused fruitcake aroma. Swampy tan appearance. Mixes the usual caramel sweetness with a tart rock candy flavor. Also moderately bitter for this style. Too light on the body. Not the best example of a strong, casked bitter.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - AUG 21, 2013
Serving: Bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a dark amber color with a small light tan head. The nose has notes of spiced cake, light caramel, and dried fruit. The flavor mirrors the nose with lighter fruity notes and a touch of tartness that I can’t quite place. Medium bodied with a dry finish. Interesting.
