3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask, Gravity at Banbury Beer Festival, Oxon, 08-05-09 Pours very dark brown in fact almost black with a light beige head. There is some nuts and roasty malts coming off of this beer. Tasted a tiny bit nutty but the roasted malts were there as was some liquorice, good fruitiness throughout. A decent beer but far from the best in the Elland range. A6 A3 F6 P3 Ov12 3.0

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask conditioned at Banbury Beer Fest ’09. Black with tan head. This was a good, darkly roasted, malty beer with a coffee pot flavour and hints of chaff. Some fruitiness in the body, nicely layered with a hint of hop in the close. Not a standard Stout I would think, but leaning that way.
