Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 27, 2010
Cask at the Battersea Beer Festival, 10th Feb 2010. Very dark brown. Quite watery. Nasty aroma - I think renfissch’s comment was "slug slime" - I got ammonia and off milk/cheese. Flavour has some of the same characteristics. Some dark fruits. Cleanish finish.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 4, 2010
Cask. Aroma has light notes of coffee, candied malt, deep auburn, red at the sides, pours a small toffee head, leaves some pretty lace. Flavour is roasted malt, a bit of coffee. Light bodied, very well balanced, lovely bitterness, a smooth suppin’ beer. Terrific session!
