Cask. Why are tickers always rating cask beers lower than bottle/keg? Bunch of haters. Haters on the menjay. I like cask, and Iím a real ticker. Get it - real like real ales? I should have been born an old eccentric British alcoholic, but alas, I was born a weird dude in these dirty south, then headed to the less dirty north, then to the also not quite as dirty, except for the human urine and feces all over the San Francisco streets, west. So here I am, in London, living a depressing but delicious and heavily sedated life that could have been. Lifestyles of the tickiní famous. Ok that one is a bad one, and Iím not famous anymore. Could walk right through a beer fest pouring one ounce rare beer pours without being noticed. Sad really. But now I have a daughter, and maybe someday sheíll be the worthless alcoholic, but ticking champion, I always strived (strove?) to be. So the beer. Very dark brown with an eternal beige head that leaves thick lacing. Aroma is dank wet charcoal after a summer campfire that got rained on, bitter cocoa, espresso beans, fall leaves. Roasty and dry flavor. A bitter finish. Medium bodied and smooth. Hides the lack of ABV well. I like this.

Had on tap at Union Tavern. Pours dark to blackish brown with a light brown head. Smell is sweet almost like brown sugar. Taste is heavily toasted malt and molasses. Not as good as the bottled version.

Pint at Heathrow. Looks exactly how youíd want a stout to look, down to the thick creamy head. Not much aroma and the flavour is disappointingly standard. Malt, a bit of chocolate and fruit. Not that rich but itís smooth and very drinkable. Donít think it needs serving as cold as I had it.

Aroma is roasted and chocolate, kind of a let down as far as flavor, malts are strong almost too creamy needs a bit of a bite for a complex feel

Cask at Bishopís Arms, MalmŲ, Norra Vallgatan
Black color with fluffy head. Mild aroma, strange, stale day old draught beer, light roastiness, firewood, old leather. Smooth mouthfeel, lowly carbonated, with light roasted malt flavor, low bitterness, some ashes and not much else going on.
