3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Gravity cask at the Elysian Winter Beer Festival 2015, Ely. Very very dark brown, or barely black. Smells of slate and burnt coffee. Sweeter taste than suggested by the aroma, rounding to a bittersweet finish reminiscent of liquorice and plums. The aftertaste is more bitter, white still retaining a fruity sweet note. Medium body. Intriguing and well-balanced.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at the Euston Tap, London. Pours brown-black with a creamy, tight tan head. Nose has some lacto and roast, dark cocoa, slight dark malt tang. Light sweet flavor, moderately roasty with some dark sugars, dirt, burnt grass, tobacco, ash. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly dry to finish, lightly sweet with burnt cocoa, mineral, burnt grass, dark toast, a bit of earth. So so overall. Certainly seems a bit thin, and the general character isn’t altogether synergistic. A decent drinker but could be better.

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask. Jet black. Light tan head. Not much nose, but what's there is malty and wheaty (full of oat). In the mouth, theres more maltiness - some fruit, plum, fig, a little banana hint. Quite dry finish and not too bitter. Nice and oaty.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask - The Butcher’s Arms, Herne. Very dark brown with a fine, rocky & loose beige head. Roasted malt and chocolate aromas with a touch of coffee. Quite a sweet, roasty flavour profile with some dark fruit, oatiness and a delicate bitter bite. Slightly disappointed by the finish; not much length or bitterness to it, but a nice toasty aftertaste. Low carbonation, medium body and a smooth, oily mouthfeel.
