Ethereal (2410) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 26, 2007
Gravicask at The Bricklayers Arms Lancashire Fest, 14th Sept 2007. Near black in colour with a meaty aroma - made me think of salami. Flavour is a heady mix of roast coffee, dark chocolate, rich fruit and smoked meat. Sligthy thin palate, but then it is a mild. Overall, very good indeed.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2007
Cask in countign house for wetherspoons beer fest. Must be noted this was in perfect condition. This is totally my type of session ale, incredible full body for the %, chocolate through and through darker fruits giving that tiny hints of tartness, really well balanced an nothing dominates though its full. Amazing stuff that i cant wait to have again.

Fin (7035) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2007
Cask at JDW The Penny Black, Bicester, Oxon 04-11-07 A very dark brown pour with some ruby glints, off white head. Some roasted notes on the nose. Had a very slight sourness on the edge, maybe getting a bit tired (this had actually finished before I left the pub) burnt flavours from roasted malts but otherwise a bit lacking.
