dogbomb (1152) - ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2013
Cask at White Cross inn beer festival. Dark rusty ale with a thick white top. Smells of biscuits and plum tart with some burnt sugar. Taste is nice warm biscuity malt with some plum and currants. Finish surprisingly dry and fruity.

Really dark red, small loose head. Lovely grainy aroma - classic cottage. Soft mellow grains in the taste, and tons of husky grains in the finish. Nice one.

stravale (2834) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JAN 8, 2013
Cask @ Ship and Mitre, Liverpool 030112
Amber, clear, thin white head, good lacing
Aroma of soft malts, not much else
Taste of caramel malts, soft cereals, not much else, bit simple
Palate - thinnish body, soft spices. Finish as main flavour, bit dry.
Overall - OK. Nothing special to me.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2004 Yet another beer from Cottage at the Head of Steam (handpump). Deep ruby colour. As expected, quite malty, with berry fruits, raisins and prunes. Toffee too. However, all this could be better integrated. Not too sweet. Not that strong either, but it is certainly aiming at the winter warmer style and succeeds quite well.
