Cask ale, half pint at the Winter Ales Festival at the New Oxford pub in Salford. Mahogany coloured body with a deep ruby shade. Lacing rings down the glassware. Inviting aroma of earthy malts added by liquorice. The taste profile is a nice mix of dark fruits, aniseed and mid-sweet, dark chocolate malt. Dry fruity ending. Soft in the mouth. Pleasant (Greater Manchester, 27.01.2013).

Cask @ The Muckle Cross, Elgin
Very dark ruby, clear, thin frothy white head.
Aroma of caramel malts, some roasted malts, molasses, fruity notes, no hops.
Taste of dark caramel malts, some chocolate, some roasted malt, hint of coffee, fruity, quite sweet, porter qualities - can’t taste the hops here, bit watery.
Palate - Quite sweet, smooth, abrupt light sweet malty finish with a slight lingering hint of chocolate, soft carb, thinnish body.
Overall - Easy drinking light porter (or slightly strong mild), but taste dulls after a while.

Cask conditioned Handpump Four Candles Oxford. A near black beer with a whitish head. I remember drinking Scotches in Cumbria many years ago, and this is close to that mark. Very low hopped. Good dryness and nuttiness. Late fruits. Has that woody altbier character. It’s pretty interesting and slips down very easily.
