Cask@Pigs Ear BF 06. Surprisingly not as roasty as i was expecting. The palate was more vinous and the alcohol came through quite evidently. This was quite nice though. Some light roasted malt notes, touches of licorice, wood, and a slight vinous acidty in the finish.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2007 Cask gravity at Pig’s Ear. Black with ruby edges, tan head. Slightly sour aroma. Bit of charcoal/ashes. Bit of liquorice. Really chewy and just so full of flavour. Finish has more of the same. Some coffee. Real supping beer. 40/50
Re-rate, cask gravity at Butcher’s Arms, Herne. Fresher sample. Well I say sample, morelike 3 pints. The intensity of the chocolate and espresso coffee takes your breath away, but there is also an underlying milkiness to it too. It’s like a box of Terry’s All Gold chocs in liquid form. Stunning.

Cask conditioned - gravity dispense - Pigs Ear BF. A black coloured beer with a whitish head. THe aroma is very dry and roasty, but doesn’t seem ever so fresh. The taste is roasty and clean with just a little fishy note. Quite mellow and uncomplicated, maybe even dull. The alcohol hides away.
