Cask gravity at GBBF 2010. Yes woody on aroma. Dark brown. I quite like the oak/hop/malt mix. Some decent toffee. Oak reminds me of a wine. Structures it quite well. Quite likeable.

20101011 This was actually a cask of Oak Aged 3 Lions Ale at Max’s. Woody and strong butterscotch. Soft palate with coating vanilla and lingering alcohol. Strong stuff, nicely done and I can deal with the diacetyl

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.
