3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask at the Crosse Key, JDW. Pours a dark auburn with a fading, mostly white head. Aroma holds quite a bit of roasted malts and caramel. Nice flavor, roasty with mild mocha, caramel and faint, earthy bitterness. Medium bodied with fine to avertage carbonation. Nice hit of mocha and espresso in the finish, some toffee and ripe fruit, light, dry roast and just subtle, leaf and earth bitters. Not at all what I expected. Could do with a bit more sugar but I did enjoy this.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask @ Standing Order. Deep dark brown/mahogany with stable head. Aroma is richly malty with a good deal of overripe fruit. Unique flavors have a good dose of licorice roots, the crust of dark fruit bread. Has old ale qualities, unique and peculiar. Very malty and solid with licorice root, herbal black molasses, and mild acidic coffee. Finishes with mincemeat, and sugar date crusts. Very good.
