3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask @ Borefts 2012 . The pour’s deep brown with a tiny off-white head. The nose is soft lactose sweetness, some brown bread, honey comb and some chocolate powder. The taste is chocolate malts, light toasted nuts and mild hints of soy sauce. Toasted grains. Smooth and drinkable, though a bit watery. Overall, this is actually quite decent for what it is. Very good flavor out of just 2.9% ABV. A very different beer at a festival dominated by heavy, smoky brews.

Cask at Borefts. Murky dark. Rown, bright tan head. Aroma of subtle lemon lime. Taste is bitter dilute toffee. Thin body. Not my favorite, but I’d like to try the adult version.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On cask at Borefts. Not the standard Black Harry, but a weaker version dry hopped with amarillo and citra. Poured dark and quite watery with a minimal head which quickly dissipated. Aroma very slight nut dark fruit. Very light watery bodyfeel and flavour of raisin and roasted malt. Just too weak a body to really work.
