Cask @ Borefts 2012. Black with only some bubbles for a head. Very lovely hopiness, citrus, tropical fruits, white grapes, pine. Taste is similar, tropical fruits, citrus zest, white grapes, tad kiwi, pulp, reasonably bitter with some mocha and dark malts, fine roast and choc in the back. Cask bodied, little carb and served warmer than usual which I mind less. It a UK thang.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From cask @ Borefts 2012. This is a deep brown one with a big-bubbly and sidesticking beige top. On the nose I get a soft chocolate tone, biscuits, some ripe old fruits and that’s about it. Soft to flat on the carbonation an it has a mild oily mouthfeel. Fruity hoppy flavors. Not much roastiness in this one. Tastes more like a dry English style IPA juiced up and added a black color. Still, it’s quite tasty. 30.09.2012
