harrisoni (13724) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2006 On tap at New Old Lompoc NW Portland. Very dark ruby, beige lasting head. Some liquoricey malt on aroma. Lovely slightly sour malts. Very different English old ale style. Good coffee malt. Different. Good hop, dry malt finish. I had the nitro version of this too, which is awful. It’s very educational though to have the two together. The nitro is stripped of flavour. A bit like a coffee creme. Like a latte with malt. Hilarious 1.8/5

Oakes (12552) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 27, 2007
Dark brown colour. Big head. Chocolatey, slightly plummy, toasty, grapefruity aroma. Toasty character with light citrus accents. With its blend of subtle roastiness and overt hoppiness, it reminds me a lot of Black Toque, but with more grapefruit and an extra splash of booze.
