DIBBLE (102) - Worthing, West Sussex, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2015
From bottle. Aroma of black forest gateau fruity sweetness, dark chocolate, roasted malt. Clear dark beer like slightly diluted cola. Head fizzed to nonexistent in seconds. Flavour similar to aroma with a herbal hopped and coffee like bitterness. Fruity characteristics seem more fermented. Sweet and malty dry finish with a twist of something else like it’s been barrel aged and taken on some whiskey/sherry notes. Subtle complexities abound.

Cask at Kingston Beer Festival, dark mahogany with a coarse white head, dark fruit and a little apple on the nose, sweetish and fruity but with an earthy and slightly dry bitterness. Complex and rather intriguing. More like an Old Ale maybe?
