Gravicask (PBF2015, Wednesday)
Very grainy aroma, lots of barley, some pulses. Copper, small loose head. Pleasant coffee-like aspects to the roast. Full palate. A bit sweet, but only what you’d expect for a 4.8% special bitter. Finish is close to spent coffee grounds. Very serviceable bitter.

This was a pleasant surprise, as I was expecting something average at best. Pours a copper amber colour and has a slightly roasted malt and fruit aroma. Nicely balanced slightly fruity and sweet malt with pleasant slightly citrus bitter finish. Pretty tasty!
