On cask on a messy night in Sheffield - Deep black body, decent tan head. Nose is dark chocolate, with a light sugar background. The taste is helped by an excellent body, with the sweetness making this too easy to drink. I know I enjoyed this, but several scenes have been deleted from what followed.

Cask @ White Lion, Heptonstall. Very dark red with a small creamy off-white head. It’s mainly a porter with the honey very light but providing a small sweetness and small smoothness to the ales texture.

Dark red colour... Sweet, rather bland flavour. Not a lot going on, but it is different. Wood drink again.
