Leighton (11900) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2011
Cask at the Evening Star, Brighton. Pours a deep red with a light, beige head. Has some ripe fruits on the nose with a bit of caramel. Flavor is lightly sweet with dark and dank ripe fruits, some mild, toasty malts, and herbal bitters. Medium in body with fine carbonation. Lightly warming finish with very herbal, tea-bag hops, and some mild caramel and fruits, but not too sweet. Pretty alright.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2011
Apparently I had to rate a beer from this county in England. Brown-red, tan cover. Aroma is fruity, berry, caramel. Taste is sweet, lots of berries, caramel, ugly finish.

Suttree (5266) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 20, 2011
Black, thin ring of beige foam. Smells like cherry and oak, mixed a bit of coffee. Flavor is pretty much the same, but less so. I get some coffee, cherry and oak (again), but it’s a bit on the bland side. Thanks to grownfool for bringing this one!

Velkyal (298) - Gordonsville, Virginia, USA - OCT 21, 2010
beautiful ruby colour and has a slightly beige head which disappeared rather quickly. I had a slight stuffy nose and couldn’t detect much at all when I tried to smell the beer, perhaps a touch roasty, but little beyond that. Taste wise though this was quite simply lovely, velvety coffee laced with milk chocolate – like a Galaxy bar from when I was a kid. The bitterness of this beer is held in balance with sweet smoothness of the finish. A really lovely beer.

Quack-Duck (8167) - Down South, GERMANY - SEP 10, 2010
cask @ Eight Bells Dover. Nearly black colour. Dry and bitter with some chocolate flavours. Quite light-bodied.

DruncanVeasey (7316) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2010
Cask handpull, Chambers, Folkestone. Mahogany with ruby glints and a thin slick of head. Light soapy aroma with hazelnut. Warms with choc, some lovely mashed up biscuit and choc-coated Rich Tea malts, orange and raisin hints, not much roast, light rum barrel. Not the legendary Dog Bolter of Dog and Trumpet days, maybe, but a tasty, straighforward winter warmer.

KnutAlbert (6267) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 16, 2009
Cask at Pig’s Ear. Dry mouth feel, quite smoky, bacon (?!) A bit one dimensional.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2009
Cask at the Pig’s Ear Fest ’09. Alround rating: Big roasty malt, fairly burnt, a bit tart, no hops. Fairly intence and heavy and not really my scene.
