Peterborough Festival. Looks like chocolate, tastes like fruit ’n nut, sweetness fights its way into the aroma but doesn’t overwhelm the flavour. One to return to this winter, methinks.

Cask Conditioned, @ the Pigs Ear Festival London.
Jet black, with a purple hue. Wonderfully generous aroma that leaps out of the glass. Juicy, liquorice, tart bitter flavours, subtle seductive sweetness that keeps you coming back for more.

Gravity fresh @ Pig's Ear Festival, East London. Very dark purple colour. Beautiful coffee roast nose. Soft coffee and red berry fruit flavour easing into slight fruit acid then finishing both wet and dry. Nice.
