2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
(Cask at Gallows Bird, 20120908) The beer poured dark brown and clear. Its head was small and white. Aroma had caramell, toffee and malts. Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were malts, liquorice, tartness and bitterness. Aftertaste was roasty and bitter. Perhaps this cask had gone bad.
