FatPhil (8581) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 27, 2014
Cask (Gallows Bird, Espoo, Real Ale Festival 2014)
Huge coconut oil aroma, some plastic aspects, some perfuminess. Even more coconut in the taste, this is like drinking sun lotion. The oily coconut never goes away, but the beer is drinkable. Did get some wafts of hot alcohol later. More annoyingly, I get smells of piss even later. Hard to believe this was the same cask that the rest of the Finnish crowd had, not sure why they’re being wowed by pissy hand lotion.

Had this at Borefts, Beer Festival, De Molen Brewery, Bodegraven, Netherlands, Friday 27th September 2013 Pours black, totally black as yer ’at black. An already great beer with a nice twist, I cannot say that I prefer this because the original is a superb beer, but this is good really good, the dark bitter honey is blunted ever so slightly by the barrell ageing which unusually because of the massive flavours of the base beer finds its usual overpowering tendancies reined in.

Theydon_Bois (6986) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2013
Tap at Borefts ’13, 27/09/13. Light black with a thin tan covering that dissipates edgeward. Nose is roasty, herbal tones, hint of cocoa, light spice. Taste comprises oaky woody notes, subtle bourbon, dark chocolate. Full bodied, fine carbonation, sweet finale. Decent barley wine, the bourbon is well integrated.
