Craft Clerkenwell. Thanks to Leighton. Cask. Opaque dark brown beer, small pale tan head. Palate is light and semi dry, modest fine carbonation. Smooth dark malts, some roast bitterness and a little dark malt cream. Touch of dark fruits. Smooth finish. Okay but ultimately just another stout.

Gravity cask@Ealing Beer Festival, London
Dark almost opaque brown color, small off-white head. Sweetish licorice aroma. Light to medium-bodied, but then a bit watery. Front has sweet licorice. Then hops and aftertaste has some medicinal notes. A bit weird.
