3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at the Rupert Brooke, Rugby, 17/04/13.
Mahogony brown with a good sized beige head that retains well. Good lacing ensues.
Nose is dark malt, very light roast, toffee, touch of smoke.
Taste is malt forward, dark toffee fudge, sugars, mineral notes, barley, dark fruits, biscuit.
Medium bodied with soft carbonation, smooth and plesant on the palate.
Decent enough fayre, but coming over as more of an ESB to me than a stout.

Cask at NWAF, 2011. Brown pour with a beige head. Raisins, pear, red apples and peach in the nose. Very fruity. Crisp apple bite in the flavour, definitely an orchard fruit feel to it. Unsurprisingly a fruity finish.
