Chelmsford Beer Festival. Opaque dark brown beer. Light tan suddy head. Light semi dry palate. Nice rich dark chocolate malt balanced by sweet orange fruit hop. Finishes semi dry. Really nice balance of chocolatey malt and mild fruity hop. Well done!

Leighton (10538) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2010
Cask at the Pembury Tavern. Pours opaque brown with a thin, beige head. Good aroma, with the vanilla notes just rising above the roasted malt foundation. Flavor is quite nice. Medium sweetness with semi-sharp, mineral malts, hints of ripe, almost tart fruits, vanilla, faint roast and very delicate hops. Light in body with fine carbonation. The finish seems to be sweeter than the initial taste, with all the preceding characteristics in addition to some maple syrup, along with some light warmth and hints of booze. Overall not outstanding, but very good.

Beershine (5212) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - OCT 21, 2010
CAsk @ Cloisters. Black with ruby tint gorgeous. Yummy blackcurrant, clove, coal, and black cherry mash in the aromas. Smooth soft palate. Delicious flavors with black cherry, tobacco in the tannic finish, sweet black licorice middle. Excellent base of acidity and chocolate malt without being toasty. Absolutely delicious and sessionable.

Cask at the Pembury Tavern on 30th June 2010. Thick, black body with a greyish head. Strong vanilla aroma and plenty of roast malts giving lingering coffee notes and some bitterness. On very good form in the pub, with a smooth but delightfully thick texture. Excellent.
