3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask @ Dada, Sheffield  [From memory as notes lost]
Black, tan head. Roasted coffee in this with a dark fairly sweet malt base, had a medium body, got the milk sugars giving it some richness. Good fairly bitter roast coffee. Remember this as pretty decent, liked it, but expected it to be better (as its a Thornbridge)...one i’d like to re-try

Dark mahogony brown with a fairly anti social tan covering that thins.
Nose is coffee forward, light roast, walnut, cocoa, toffee fudge, sweet but balanced.
