Scopey (6242) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2012
Cask Gravity at The Hope ’Living is Easy’ Beer Fest. It pours murky brown, with a thin off-white head. The nose is oak, vanilla, syrupy caramel, chocolate (akin to Millionaires shortbread) and sweet fruit. The taste is oak, leather, leaf, rather dry, touch of bitter chocolate, bourbon, and more oak. Medium body and soft carbonation. An interesting beer indeed.

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2011 Bottle at Mes Tasting. Pours cloudy brown with a creamy head. Medium roast malt nose with heavy toffee and caramel. Quite a sweet flavor, has some sweet cocoa, light coffee, mild bourbon, some wood. Medium to full in body with fine carbonation. Finishes sweet, warming, has some wood, ripe fruits, lightly dry. Very nice.

Cask (gravity dispense) at the White Horse Old Ale Festival on 26 November 2010. Supposedly based on Urban Dusk but aged in a Bourbon barrel but the ABV uplift seems rather high so I suspect other differences. Or perhaps the White Horse programme lists the strength incorrectly. Darkish colour with ruby highlights. Loads of milky chocolate in evidence, coupled with some tart, juicy fruit. A little dry malt in the background. Whisky influence is subtle. Finishes dry but the overall mouthfeel is rich and agreeably balanced. Beautifully drinkable. I like it. Shame it’s (presumably) a one-off.
