COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We somehow trapped some of our beastly St. Petersburg two years ago in very special French Oak Casks, but they can hold it no more! Itís escaped; its flavours are fully rounded and complemented by the Oak, itís now NINE percent.......and itís very, very ANGRY!

Leighton (9883) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2013
Cask at CBC - Clerkenwell, London. Pours black-brown with a fine, beige foam head. Some dry cocoa in the aroma, some burnt wood, raisins. Medium to big sweet flavor with dark and dry wood, marshmallows, light toffee, moderate char, dark sugars, baking cocoa. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Mild warmth in the finish, nice oak notes, dry wood, light earthy bitterness, further baking cocoa. Great beer. Good balance, well rounded.

Scopey (5557) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2012
Cask at Cask Pub & Kitchen. It pours hazy very dark brown with a small beige head. The nose is big on the oak, roasted malt, treacle, salted caramel, touch of chocolate, ash and liquorice. The taste is caramel, wood, leather, very dry, treacle, liquorice, roasted malt, big alcohol warmth, salty edge, spice, milk chocolate, bitter earthiness and ash with a dry, warming finish. Full body and soft carbonation. A challenging beer indeed. I personally feel that the oak character consumes the base beer.

Cask at Craft Clerkenwell - 21/12/12 thanks to Ed for the split. Mid black with a thin tan head that clears to the edge after a short time. Nose is dark roast malts, wood tones, bitter chocolate, booze. Taste comprises roast malt, leather, molasses, dark chocolate, wood, booze. Full bodied with soft carbonation, slightly dry and definately boozey in the finish. Most decent.

Cask in Craft Brixton. Opaque black thin off white head. Nose is lactic, milky, lots of vanilla, dark chocolate, bit of roasted. Taste is dark chocolate, lots of vanilla, lactic, oak wood. Itís very smooth and well balanced. Not overpowering at all. Very little to no carbonation.
