Cask@GBBF2010. Deep reddish amber colour with no head. Aroma is fruits, some vanilla and mild wooden notes. Also has some stingingly sweet notes and mild alcohol. Flavour is similar, and rather alcoholic sweet stinging. Yet the wooden notes give it atleast some kind of balance.

CASK at BSF GBBF 2010 ... dark brown ... odd medicinal melon nose ... ah its fresh oak... its much fresher than most oak beers... like walking though an oak wood ... soft toffee very oaky ... juicy and quite unusual ... i like the fresh oak.

Difficult to distinguish the aroma. Brownish color. Grapey, woody flavors. Notes: On Cask at the GBBF ’10

Cask at GBBF. Copper brown, frothy head. Sharp fruity aroma, dark fruits nose. Vanilla with flavours of dark fruit lingering. Not bad.

Cask, GBBF 10. Dark brown with a beige foam. Aromas are oak and citrus caramel and toffee malts. Some barnyard notes. Malty and fruity. Flavours are sweet toffee and chocolate malts with citrus. Woody with alcohol on the finish. Bitter on the aftertaste.

Cask. Light bourbon oakiness; caramel and toffee, light dark fruits. Soft body with decent carbonation. Nice, but nothing special.

sloth (2816) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - SEP 27, 2009
Cask @ DuClaw RAF 09, several samples, my fave at the fest. Thin creamy tan head, i do beleive this brew was the best carbontaed brew at the fest. Soft and spritely, silky on the palte with some woody prickleyness. Lightly hazy brown in color. Lots of lumber in the nose, gently fruity with notes of vanilla and caramel malts. Lucious wood flavors, vanilla and earthy flavors, leafy with a soft maltiness. Just a really nice brew, highly quaffable which is what i did.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 23, 2009
Growler (from cask). Dark brown, thin tan creamy head. Bold oak aromas warm to soft swirls of toasty vanilla, toffee, and hints of earthed citrus. Roasted brown toffee malt and vanilla wood flavors balance well on back end earthy hop bitterness. Light to medium bodied, cask-like carbonation, dry wooden bittersweet finish. Great expansion on an already solid base beer. Should be considered for draft status more often...
