4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask at Pigs Ear 2011, London. Pours dark brown with a fine, beige head. Moderate roast and rich chocolate aroma. Delicious flavor, rich and creamy chocolate, medium roast, some dry earth. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Semi-dry finish, light mocha, chocolate chips, short bitter cocoa. Quite excellent. At first I thought this brewery was a bit cocky, but after having this beer they have some license.

Dark black with a big frothy tan head.

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.
