Cask conditioned at The Post Office Vaults, Birmingham. Dark brown with cream head. Initially quite thin but then develops some body. Caramel mixed with liquorice and a grape like fruitiness. Ends reasonably full on the palate. Pretty decent.

tombyars (1599) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - DEC 13, 2011
First tasted this in Coanes, Johnstone in November 1991. Cask, handpump dispense. Ruby black in colour with a thin tan head. Strong roast grain present in the long aroma. Thin oily mouthfeel and good lacing. Dark malts deliver a rich maltloaf base with treacle toffee, mocha coffee, raisin fruit and chocolate. Dry prickle of dusty hop resins add to the malt well in the short aftertaste. Dryness continues with roast almonds, liquorice and molasses in the robust malty finish. An excellent mild and one of the best examples out there. Highly recommended.
