4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask handpull, Derby Summer BF 2011. Obsidian, no light showing. Fat tan collar. Saliva-prompting nose deep with sherried booze, jam set on fire, flambeed fruit cake, espresso weakly sprinkled with chocolate. A hell of an aroma. Deep, pungent, mellow taste mad with red apple (barbecued), mocha, charred pistachio. Iím a bit suspicious of Fullers but all credit to them, this is an outstanding stout up there with some of the best strong UK stouts Iíve tasted and my joint Beer of The Festival.
