On tap at the brewery, Henley-on-Thames, Oxon 20.04.12 Looks pretty black in colour with light beige head. Not so bitter from the outset, though the bitterness does tend to open up and cut through some dark roastiness and molasses actually I get quit a blast of caramel initially but the bitterness swiftly reigns this in. Soft in the mouth, some burnt flavours occasionally pop up. Another beer that I’m really enjoying from Lovibonds. A7 A5 T8 P4 Ov15 3.9

Keg @ The White Horse. Deep brown with a medium tan head. The nose is peppery, caramel and plenty of toffee. The taste is lightly hoppy, with plenty of toasty grain, more chewy caramel. Not the hoppy beast I was expecting but still quite pleasant. Sweet and sticky. Medium body, soft carbonation. Overall, a pretty good effort.
