3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Gravity cask @ NWAF 2014, Derby. Dark brown with a hint of ruby. Slight translucence. Woody, nutty, earthy, slightly sour aroma. Malt sweetness and hop bitterness vie for attention in the balanced taste. Bitter/sour finish, nothing much on the palette. A solid ale I’d be happy to have again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Very dark brown, almost black, light tan head. Aromas of new carpet (weird but the first thing i got), cherries, dark fruits, toffee, roasted malt and nuts. Quite a thin mouth feel. Caramel and nuts on tasting with a spirit-esque aftertaste.
A good beer with a decent ABV. However it would be great if the mouth feel was as full as on tap.
