imdownthepub (10152) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2010
Cask conditioned, gravity dispense at The Lord Nelson Inn, Reedham, Norfolk. Reddy brown with white head. I had a big leafy tobacco note right away with this, then a sweetish chocolate, toffee flavour. Vanilla in the close, smooth but flawed.

Milky roast. Fairly solid, but the lacticity built up and detractoed from teh taste eventually. Pretty OK, I guess.
