Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2013
Cask at Great British Beer Festival 2013. Poured a black colour with a thick, dense tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, liquorice and some ryebread. Slightly more watery mouth feel than I was hoping for. Dark fruit flavours with molasses and plain chocolate. Finishes with burnt malt, hop resin and sweetened coffee.
