Cask @ Hogshead. Pours a deep reddish orange appearance with a cream colored head. Chocolate, toffee, mild dark fruity, a bit earthy aroma. A bit thin. Caramelized sugary, roasty, a bit nutty, chocolate, earthy flavor. Kind of disappointing.

On cask at Hogshead poured a clear dark reddish brown with a small lasting creamy tan head. Aromas of roastiness, bakers cocoa and fruittiness. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of lightly bitter roastiness, mild fruittiness,light carmel and light cocoa with a smooth finish.

Ernest (6200) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 16, 2012
Cask at Hogshead. Head is light brown, mostly lasting. Body is dark brown. Aroma is lightly malty (roasted grain, dark chocolate), lightly to moderately hoppy (resin), with a note of Lemon Pledge. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, soft carbonation. Not very clean (oddly medicinal/chemical) and fairly bland.

cask. served too cold. fruity apple and pear ester nose with doughy and creamy caramel and limp nuts. light touches of roast coffee. watery texture, low carbonation, semi-thin body. light toast and sweetish caramel with slightly musty yeast. doughy dunkel-like rather than schwarzbier.

Collaboration with Hogshead? - on cask? - yes, please - kind of a hybrid of a dark British mild and a Schwarz - in fact, I would not be surprised if this is the same malt bill as Barge’s Mild - turbid dark brown - nose is light mineral, earthy, dry British maltiness, a bit of grassy noble hop character - very dry and moderately roasty - light acidity through the middle - light mineral note on the tail end works well with the grassy noble hop bite that comes at the end - very tasty.
