[Gravity cask at the Back of Beyond, Reading] Black with ruby hints, no head. Sweet chocolate, camp coffee and a bit of treacle causes it to be rather sweet up front. However, itís saved by roasted malt coming through in the surprisingly dry finish. Itís rather nice actually.

Herold Black Lager is a real drink , the best Schwarzbier in the world imo. Had this cask at a JDWS and it was cool and more interesting than most in their festival. Roasted chocolate and burnt raisin profile , with a little motor oil in the finish . Swillable ,tasty Schwarz.

Hand pulled cask at the Moon and Sixpence (JDW) Hatch End. Almost black with a creamy tan head. Dry roast coffee and chocolate with a little caramel and peppery Saaz hops. Interesting to try this cask conditioned.

Black color with reddish lights.
Thin body, watery texture.
Nice roasted aromas. Roasted malts on taste as well.
Easy going but pleasant beer.
