3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask at the Evening Star, Brighton. Pours dark, red-brown with a foamy, off-white head. Nose is all dark, roasty malts. Has an awesome flavor, medium sweet with lots of mellow tobacco and charred malts. Medium in body with fine carbonation. Finishes lightly dry and quite roasty with plenty of ash and smoke. Great stuff.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On cask (handpump) at the Mudlark, London Bridge on 15 January 2011. Good solid dark stuff. Quite roasty. Some coffee in evidence. Maybe a hint of licorice. Dry and very drinkable. Definitely one of my favourite Sharps’ beers. Will probably be axed now Coors are at the reins I’d imagine.

Cask Conditioned handpump Mudlark London Bridge. A black beer with a white head. A pretty thin stout. Some licquorice in the nose and sweet candy in the mouth. No roastiness. A bit of prefumed meat as well. Odd. I don’t really get Sharps beers.
