Gravity cask at Twickenham Beer Festival. Black, big bubbly tan head. Aroma is light, some ’juicy fruit’ chewing gum. Body is medium, smooth, slightly foamy. Taste is twiggy, a little butter and toffee, lemon rind and straw hop. Very drinkable. Good. Best beer on the day.

tombyars (1411) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - OCT 15, 2013
Tasted this stout at the Troon Beer Festival in October 2013. Cask, gravity dispense. Dull black in colour with a thin buff head. Distinct aroma of mocha coffee in the long aroma. Thin oily mouthfeel and poor lacing. Dark malt complex gives a chocolate sponge base with notes of black coffee, liquorice and roast grain. There is a hint of dusty hop flowers in the aftertaste but this is short in intensity. Finish is malty with dry liquorice flavours dominating the palate. Not as complex nor full bodied as I would like for 5.5% but a decent enough stout none the less.

Fin (7674) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2013
Cask, gravity, Merton Winter Beer Festival Feb 2013 w/e of Friday 15th, Saturday 16th February 2013 Pours black with a tan head, in fact this looked quite superb in the glass. Tastes was pure indulgence, roasty and with a gentle seam of bitterness, but complimented well by a big dollop of chocolate or more particularly milk chocolate and then a little powdery good quality cocoa, a little dry towards the end, this is one excellent stout and my beer of the festival.

Theydon_Bois (9915) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2013
Gravity dispense at Merton Winter BF ’13. Dark black with a big frothy tan head. Nose carries rich roast malts, chocolate, toffee, background hops. Taste follows, roasty malt, chocolate leading the way, some hop presence. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation lending towards a dryish finish. A solid stout.

Cask conditioned at Merton Winter Beer Fest ’13. Black with tan head. Big, burnt charcoal flavours, really bitter and dry, lots of depth, heavy on the palate. The bitterness lasts on and on, liquorice in the finish. Another big tasting beer, very good.
