4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask at the Euston Tap, London. Pours dark brown with a creamy, tan head. Nice roasted malt nose, some dark earth and grass. Very true. medium sweet flavor with dry roast, baking cocoa, bitter earth. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Great condition. Roasty finish with creamy chocolate, light coffee, dirt, dry earth. Very nice intensity. Rich but not at all overbearing. Extremely solid, well-rounded beer.

On cask at Cloisters. Pours a very dark brown colour with a decent tan head. A lovely aroma of liquorice, caramel, coffee and chocolate. Similar flavours with a great pine hop linger. Moderate carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Delicious!
