COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottle conditioned.
A rich full flavoured, strong stout with a roast coffee aroma. The dominant roast character is balanced by a warming sweetness and a raisiny, fruit-cake taste which lingers on into the long aftertaste, making this a very satisfying drink.

500 ml bottle, bought in Scarborough. Dent tOwd Tup was voted Champion Winter Beer of Britain in 1999, a fact that is still proudly displayed on the label. Black colour, reddish brown in the highlights. Decent creamy tan head, does not last forever. Moderate but very nice roasty aroma, notes of coffee, hints of chocolate, leather and plums. Concerning the flavour, for once I find it appropriate to quote the commercial description / tasting notes: "The dominant roast character is balanced by a warming sweetness and a raisiny, fruit-cake taste which lingers on into the long aftertaste, making this a very satisfying drink." Pretty much spot on, if you ask me. A combination of maltiness and fruitiness carries the beer through, and Northdown hops are used for both aroma and flavour. Good stuff!

harrisoni (13564) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2007
Cask gravity at Planet Thanet BF 2007. Very dark ruby colour with disappearing beige head. Tarry blackcurrant is intense. Chewy in mouth, verges on tarry molasses, but the fruit keeps it in check. Great integrated alcohol, gives body without dominating. Fruit and dates and blackberry are very good. Oddly refreshing.

A Mes rate: Gravicask @ Planet Thanet. I think this is well underrated. Yet another in perfect condition at the fantastic Winter Gardens festival. Lovely coffee and malt aroma with, I kid you not, a hint of tomato. Milky coffee and caramel in the mouth with some slight tarry rubbery stouty stuff. Lovely delicate bitterness to the finish balances it out really well. Silky soft in the mouth. Good beer in my opinion.

UPDATED: OCT 9, 2006 Cask at GBBF 06: a brown stout, not bitter and roasty for a stout, some mocha and capuccino flavor, dried fruits, medium-light body. An ok stout, interesting but not much more then that.

Dark cola-purplish color. Malty aroma. Rather flat stout like feel. Raisiny-musty flavor. Alcohol kicks under the tongue.
