Half-pint, cask at Wheatsheaf, shared with Finn. Good looking, deep, dark coloured body. Dissipating beige head. Dark malts to the nose added by a drop of resin. The flavour displays aniseed malts, wood and resin-like hops. Bitter liquorice malts to the ending. Tasty mild (London, 4.11.2012).

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2012 (Cask at Angleterre, 20121119) The beer poured dark brown and clear. Its head was medium sized, white and long lasting. Aroma had malts and molasses. Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were malts, molasses, grass and bitterness. Afteraste was malty and bitter. The hops were quite strong for a mild but that was not too disturbing.
