Fluxing (519) - POLAND - JUL 30, 2014
Z pompy, One Eyed Rat, Ripon. Kolor ciemnobrunatny, ale nie czarny. Piana niska, kremowa, zostawia gruba obraczke i bardzo mocno oblepia szklo. W aromacie slodkie, kawowe, karmelowe, lekko mleczne, minimalnie lodygowo-owocowe, lekkie sliwki, rodzynki i migdaly. W smaku ogromna pelnia i gladkosc, lekko sliskie, smak to powtorka aromatu, jednak mniej intensywna. Goryczka niska, glownie ziolowa, lekko sciagajaca. Wysycenie bardzo niskie, ledwie wyczuwalne.

jjsint (1260) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2014
Cask @ Glue Pot, Swindon. A convincing dark brown with a small tan head. Translucent. Oak, porridge and roasted malt dominate the nose. Taste is largely malt, very sweet with a slight sourness like freshly picked blackberries. Balanced sweet milky coffee aftertaste. Gentle, creamy mouthfeel. A cracker of a stout, and likely the best offering from Hop Back.
