half @ 18th camra battersea. Nice deep oaty nose, and dark red in colour. Tasted almost like porridge, in a good way, but was overly lively and had a very short finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask (Peterborough Beer Festival 2004)
Rich brown, thin head. Toast, and roasted malts in the aroma. In the mouth it’s very malty, but with no real bitterness either from hops or burnt malts. Good for 3.4%.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cask, gravity at Cambridge BF ’07. Dark brown. Grainy malt aroma and taste. Unexpectedly bitter. Not outstanding; this somehow just didn’t do the job.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma was malty, chcolate and biscuit having a day, no hops to be found. Taste is similar but very full flavoured for the %, not too roasty also which is a good thing.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Half pint gravity fed at the Battersea Beer Festival, a brown colour with no real head. A musty malt aroma with hints of chocolate. A medium mouthfeel, a good malty flavour with a little bit of chocolate, and an interesting bitter character all the way through.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice flavour, and creamy foam, I liked it more. BUt it was a little annoying after a while. Although the bitterness is good.
