[cask at the Wellington, Birmingham] Dark ruby pour with a thin head that reduces pretty quickly to almost nothing. On the aroma, chocolately malt predominates which leads into the taste before the finish becomes more coffee than chocolate. Good depth of flavour for its abv

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Hand pulled at the Wellington, Birmingham. Chestnut red brown, with speckled head. A flavour that reminds me of heaving myself through acres of UK ales at Olympia. Thin in gob. Some sweet roasted malts with some ghost of cherry liqueur; then glossy, icey nothing. On balance, disappointing.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
[Cask at the Wellington, Birmingham.] Deep tawny brown with a thin tan head - tar and tobacco aromas - lactic and rather thin to start, then becoming floury and dry before a sweeter finish. An excellent mild.
