Cask in the Euston Tap. Dark brown with reddish depths, white foam. Surprisingly bitter, agree it’s more like a low abv black ipa than anything else. Or you could just call it a dark session beer, very bitter, both hops and a bit of malts, with herbal nettle and a bit of aniseed. Moreish. Doesn’t quite sit together but went down well.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled 12/07/14. A dark ruby coloured beer with a big whitish head. A really hoppy and bitter mild. Not getting chocolate, coffee, caramel or spice as per the comm description. Tasty for sure and blind this could be mistaken for a BIPA. I really liked it. An enjoyable beer whatever it is.
