FatPhil (13051) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 15, 2016
Draught (Gallows Bird, Espoo, Real Ale Festival 2016)
Black, small tight head. Very pleasant roasted aroma. Lovely soft palate, maybe a bit watery. Blackcurrant comes out in the nose. Alas just a hint of sourness in the taste, but it’s not off yet. At times a bit harsh and minerally. Finish beautifully roasty. Ups and downs, but I certainly warmed to it.

Cask @Gallows bird, Real ale festival 2016. Pours almost black with a thin brown head. Chocolate, coffee, cocoa and ash dominates. Really dry, ashy finish in this one. Light bodied, but nicely flavored, too ashy for me though.
