3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask, shared with mr-h at Bow Bar. A rustic tint to a very dark coloured body. Low, beige layer at the surface. Mid-sweet, roasted malts on the nose. Malts of chocolate and caramel dominate the taste character with distant fruity hops beneath. Rounded, mild malt-fruity finish. Easy to drink and quite pleasing (pub crawl in Edinburgh 09.08.2013).

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask conditioned at The Wenlock Arms, Hoxton, London. Dark brown with off white head. The roasted malt flavours are definitely there, maybe a little thin, but charred husk notes and chocolate, however; I didn’t get the hops very much, there wasn’t the prominence I was expecting. A touch disappointing.
