TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 26, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2006 Half pint pulled at The Lower Red Lion in St Albans (Hertfordshire), a dark amber with a filmy head. A strong malty aroma, slightly tartish. A delicious chocolate malt flavour with a good smooth mouthfeel.

Cask-conditioned at the Kings Arms, Didmarton Gloucs, 30/4/08. Pale chestnut with a slight off-white head. Red fruit and caramel aromas followed by slightly sweet, fruity malt flavours. Some bitterness in the finish which brought balance. A good beer.

Cask@The Drum, London. Deep amber colour, smalll beige head. Aroma is nutty, dark fruity, floral and also some mild herbal and malty notes. Flavour is similar, but has the dark fruits and nuttyness coming in stronger than in the aroma.

DanielBrown (3855) - 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.

Cask handpull, The Crown, Nuneaton, 11/03/14. Ruby with a bone hued crown. Aroma souring rhubarb and red wine vinous. Dried fruit plum and figgy sweetness lightly puffed with roast. Hints of chocolate yoghurt and nectarine fruit. Decent.
