DanielBrown (3700) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2004
Gravity at the Rail Ale Beer Festival, Barrow Roundhouse, Chesterfield. I think the GWR stands for Great Western Real (or something like that). Very dark bitter, no head. Horsey aroma, with some Belgian bun. Spicy, slightly tart beer. Almost hints of balsamic vinegar, with some dark choc. Tasty and broodingly powerful.
