UPDATED: FEB 22, 2009 Cask handpull at White Horse, Parson’s Green. Very deep ruby colour with lasting beige head. Subtle dark malt aroma. Burnt toast. Good dark strong beer, good mouthfeel. Not great, but extremely competent. Bit of creamy vanilla too. 3.5/5 Re-rate at Metro Bar, JDW, Baker Street. I missed this at the beer festival last year, so pleased to see it. Very deep mahogany, lasting thin beige, lovely choccy strong ale, lots of dry malt. Lots of malty fruity flavour. Tasty as hell, just a little syrupy. Alcohol is well contained in the big malts. Excellent. Dryish finish.

Cask Conditioned. Beware the Beast for he creeps up on you. A big dark beer with roasted malt, chocolate, prunes. This does not drink its strength, the night was young and the warning signs were there, but we had to go and have a sesh. It drinks like a best bitter with more flavour, but boy when he kicks in. I don't like Exmoor Beast, I love it! as I've heard before in another context.
