3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Canned and at 8.8%: A black and foamy number. The nose is plum and molasses with a hint of sherry vinousness. In the mouth it is puffy, strong and not a little smoky. It definitely has a smoked ham edge to it, even down to a tinge of metal. It’s good and heady. Not overly complex but still definitely a sipper.

GBBF. Cask. Opaque black beer, tan head. Surprisingly light palate, semi dry. Rich dark malt but not roasty or bitter. Licorice well balanced with the dark malt. Some fruit underneath - subtle. Dry finish with a touch of coffee. Tasty and drinkable.

GraviCask (GBBF2011, Thursday)
Black, tan head - a real looker. Super rich bacony aroma, I love that in a stout. Sweet mashy body. Strangely there’s smoked fish in the retronasals, but it’s not out of place. Covers the alcohol very well. Very roasty finish, which carries more smoked fish - so it wasn’t an aberration.
