Leighton (10538) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2012
Cask at the brewpub, London. Pours clear, red-brown with a fine, white foam head. Very nice, rich toasty dark grain bread nose. Light sweet flavor with some toast, mild cocoa and dark bread. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Nice condition. Lightly sweet to finish with more of the same characteristics: dark bread, cocoa, light coffee. Very solid brown ale. Exceptionally well balanced. This style doesn’t get much love, and fair enough as most breweries don’t give brown ales any respect. This beer, on the other hand, certainly reflects some care and attention. Good work.

DruncanVeasey (7112) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2012
Cask gravity, Derby Winter BF, 17/02/12. Walnut with copper edges under a decent, cream-hued festival head. Aroma of cocoa-dusted forest fruits. Is very nice. Quite a lush raspberry and blackberry pavlova thing happening with leathery, Germanic, cocoa-sprinkled malts beneath. Love that discreet twang of berries and smoke. One of the best beers of the day.

HogTownHarry (6063) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 26, 2012
Handpull at The Botanist. Clear deep ruby, average lasting creamy/foamy tan head. Simple slightly sweet nutty/floral aroma, no cola, a little cocoa. Taste follows, just a little bit of cola syrup, still peetry much no alcohol. Light body and carbonation, finishes quickly - a bit of scorched malt in the aftertaste.

On cask @ the brewpub. Nice looking, very dark amber body with a moderate sized beige head. Aroma has roasted malt, chocolate and dark berries. Nice roasted malt flavor with dry fruit and bitter chocolate and coffee. Moderate bitterness. Fine body and a pleasant aftertaste. Nice and tasty ale that goes well together with the tapas plate.
