COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.

An ale with extravagant depths, an ale reluctant to give up it’s secrets, an ale of hidden pleasures, this is Inntrigue. Delve into the abyss and you will be rewarded with hints of succulent winter berries and a concealed whisper of dark chocolate and freshly baked bread. This is an ale woven around subtlety, laced with a web of rare flavours: an ale of mysterious shadows waiting to be explored.

Cask-conditioned at the Seven Stars, Bristol 18/03/10. Copper coloured with a decent, lacy white head. Aroma of biscuit malts, damsons and a touch of caramel sweetness. Flavour had more fruit, cereal malts and a big, bitter finish. Very enjoyable.

Leighton (10781) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2014
Cask at the Cleveland Arms - Bayswater, London. Pours clear, rich gold with a creamy, white head. Pleasant brown bread aroma with touches of toasted leaves. Light to medium sweet flavor with good, bouncy bready malts, light toast, brown sugar, faint berries, low bitterness. Light bodied with fine carbonation; great condition. Balanced finish with more citrusy now but underscored by fundamental, brown bread malts. A very drinkable bitter.

bhensonb (10951) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 20, 2011
Cask at The Market Porter. Pours ruddy copper with a creamy white head. Aroma is spicy/malty. Flavor is spicy, light roast malt and something like woody. Ends like paper/woody/spicy and strangely this is not a bad thing. Is is quite off the common way. After a long, long time, a hint of mint.

a_cross (600) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2014
Cask; ruby brown, moderate white head; aroma of caramel, lightly toasted malts; taste is also malty, slightly sweet, light toast; smooth mouthfeel; dark berries and a little twiggy; reminded me initially of ryvita cracker bread; chocolate notes came to the fore later in the drink and in the moderate bitter finish; likeable.
