AshtonMcCobb (2939) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 2, 2014
On cask at the Haymarket. Appearance - pretty close to opaque black with just the tiniest of red chinks around the glass. Big creamy head. Nose - very dark chocolate and caramel. Just a hint of coffee. Taste - caramel melded with liquorice. Some dark chocolate comes through on the end. Palate - medium to full bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - very enjoyable.

Cask from lescar, sheffield. Black with a bubbly eggshell head. Aroma is roasted coffee and tart with liquorice and dark forest fruits. Taste is smoky and tart too, subtle bitterness follows. Medium body with some oil, slight carbonation. Very nice.

Osprey87 (2049) - WALES - NOV 7, 2014
Cask. Finally caught up with this one, albeit by scraping it out of the bottom of the cask, so it may not be in best form. Black, big foamy tan head. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is sweet, dates, coffee syrup, lightly astringent and ashy. A bit too sweet maybe, but balanced by an ashy bitterness. Nice in small amounts.

Where I live, my go to beer. Live less than 3 miles from the brewery so always available locally. I guess this stuff was created all those years ago in the shadow of Brunel, Stephenson and that bloke who invented the lift. History in a glass, when porters were king until dethroned by that wazz called Guinness. This is born of hard times, fortitude and foresight. Wow beer.

On cask, from old notes. Full sweet malts, chocolate, molasses, but also very well burnt with coffee notes. Very dark, wonderful and pretty strong too.

Cask @ Sir Norman Rae, Shipley. Black with a thin off-white creamy head. Has a lovely smooth milky roasted malt character with just about the right sweetness.
