A Mes rate: cask at Baker St ’Sporks.
Dark mahogany with a lasting beige head. A good looking beer. Rich bready malt aroma with lots of cake and dark fruit and strong notes of liquorice. Simlar flavour with some clear but inoffensive alcohol. Rich and warming finish with plenty of sweetness that is just about held in check. Pretty good beer overall.
