Scopey (8515) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2014
Bottle at an oil conference of all places! It pours deep brown with a thick, foamy light tan head. The nose is woody,earthy, treacle, cocoa, light burnt notes and dark fruits. The taste is bitter, earth, wood, treacle, dark fruit, leather, mild astringency, blackcurrant compote and dirt with a bitter, woody finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. A sipper if anything. An acceptable old ale, but it didn’t exactly blow me away.
