A warming dark winter beer that has a hint of blackcurrant in the aroma. Beautifully balanced and smooth, this is a beer for the connoisseur.

500ml bottle. Looks pretty unappetising. Bottle bought at Cobbetts in Dorking. This is my local brewery and it tastes a little different to last year. No lacing at all so different to the cask according to other reviewers. Very dark beer and I’m surprised this is a premium bitter. Packs a punch as it tastes of coffee and strong malts.

Cask at Pigs Ear. Clear dark red brown beer. Semi dry palate. Rich malt, almost dark malt in character. A little smoky and bitter. Okay dried fruit hops balance things out. Slight bitterness in the semi dry finish.

Cask@Pigs Ear Beer Festival 2011. Deep amber colour, small off-white head. Aroma is berries, wood, caramel, floral and some mild resiny notes. Flavour is fruity and floral notes along with some caramelly and wooden notes. Balanced, and actually quite nice berryish notes in the aftertaste.
