not showing much change with an aged keg, still the velvety rich chocolate with a touch of dark fruits, but none of the sherry that shows up in the bottle after a couple of years,

Bottle at the Dilly Deli. Poured clear brown color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly diminished with good lacing. Moderate toasted malt and citrus hoppy aroma. Medium to full body. Medium to heavy toasted bittersweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where met.

Malziger Antrunk mit semiger Bananennote, danach fruchtiger werdend. Das Malz wird dabei immer kräftiger, die Bananennote zieht mit und stiegert sich ebenfalls. Leicht schokoladig, extrem röstig und voluminös. Zum Ende blickt ein getreidiger Ton durch den Alkohol. Danke an kappldav123! /12/12/13/11/13

On Mini Cask at The Royal Oak, Wantage. Jet black with tan head. I feel totally unworthy about describing a beer like this, so it’s just my experience I am putting down. There is a massive roasty flavour kicking off at the start, liquorice, bitter coffee. The beer smooths in to a tarry note, quite heavy on the palate and distinct alcohol note. The palate was cornered then as there was no way I could taste anything else for an hour. Marellous experience, many thanks to Paul of The Royal Oak.
