Cask gravity at the Tewkesbury Winter Ale Festival, 02/02/2008. A very interesting aroma and taste of freshly ground, fruity coffee. Rather like well-roasted peaberry. Some hoppy notes which balance it out and a slightly bitter finish.

Gravity pour Yeovil beer fesdtival. Very dark red/dark brown, good but thin head which dies relatively quickly. Aroma of unripe plums, raisins, brown malt, and caramel. Very well balanced taste with a touch of burnt bitterness balancing the very, very slight caramel and ripe berry sweetness. Leaves a full juicy feel behind; very nice

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2006 [Cask at The Three Judges] Deep brown colour with a thin, tan head. Roasted malt and chocolate arma with some burnt notes on the palate. Medium, creamy mouthfeel, dry, roasty finish.
[2nd rating] Weird, much less roasted character ths time, leaning more towards fruit and sweeness, seems like a different beer.

Cask, Newcastle Arms. Deep dark brown with a thin tan head. Malty aroma with hints of dark fruit. Decent body and a smooth mouthfeel. Roasted flavour with some restrained coffee and dark chocolate notes. Medium bitter finish. Good stuff.
