downender (7925) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, - FEB 5, 2011
On gravity at the Tewkesbury Beer festival, 4/02/2011. Deep amber in colour with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of black coffee, marmalade fruit and citrus hops. Flavour had a sulphurous, mineral edge, more sweet fruit and a roasty, dry finish. Enjoyable.

Cask, handpull at The Royal Oak, Wantage, Oxon, 20.02.11 in company of Loz, Lyn & Barry Pours dark brown, good clarity, some bubbles on the rim. Fruity in mouth with a little sourness at the edges. One trick pony but just about ok. A6 A4 T6 P3 Ov12 3.1

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2009
Cask handpull, The Village Inn, Nailsworth (brewery tap): 4.4% according to the chalk board, 4.5% according to the website. Deep ruby and lacing beige. Sulphurous/musky hop aroma melding into coffee, coal, blackcurrant and cinder toffee. Oily and full with just the right tingle of fizz. Earthy espresso, mineral saltiness, egg, roast. Burton Snatch meets dab of Mikkeller burnt toastiness and US hop. Balanced and moreish, in the pits of a hangover. Full and fruity. Very good.
