Bottle from the brewery. This are clearly not bottled conditioned which is a big disappointment because they taste so much better on cask. I will try to re-rate on cask soon. Chesnut brown, clear, white head. Very little on the nose. Taste is caramel, slight oxidisation (bottles are 3 months old), bit of damp cellar, some grain, little bit of black tea, little musty and fusty.

Gravity, 7th Hinckley BF, 11/09/14. Barely-wisped dark bronze. Decent stewed sweet spiced vegetable taste with hints of clove and smoked almond. Aroma of honeyed wholemeal biscuit, dung and thistles.

Vladivostok (250) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2014
Medium-dark bitter with a chewy, malty mouthfeel. Distinct flavour of crystal malt and a surprisingly intense bitter aftertaste which knocks the balance somewhat. Not bad.

Cask in the Kings Head W2. Deep reddish brown beer, no head to speak of. Decent full flavour, malty, slight sweetness, toffee maybe, biscuit, hint of toast, and a bitter finish part malt part hops I reckon. Tasty enough.
