harrisoni (13276) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2009
Cask handpull from Ship & Mitre, Liverpool. Black, thin tan head. Lots of roast on aroma, but lots of blackcurrant too. Really burnt malts the kind of intensity you’d associate with an impy stout. A little watery in the body, but the blackcurrant slightly sour finish over intense dark malts is very impressive

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2008
A Mes rate: Gravicask at Battersea Beer Festival.
Totally balck and opaque with a thin bubbly head. Coffee, dark malt and lovely rich and bitter dark chocolate. Nice but it’s just not quite tarry and oily enough and the mouthfeel is a little on the thin side. Decent stuff but could be a lot better.
