Still deep in the grip of Winter this sumptuous warming beer is sufficiently well hopped to provide balance, which can come in handy when there’s black ice around!

Cask at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) A deep ruby brown colour with a foamy tan head. Aroma of bread, cherry, some other dark fruits, some roasted malts, slight liquorice and subtle caramel. Taste of roasted malts, some caramel, slight cough sweets, dark fruits, subtle liquorice and some burnt flavours. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A soft, roasted bitterness in the finish. Smelled sweet and malty but tasted roasty and liquoricey. Something different, nice.

Cask in the Cheshire Cheese, Buxton. Ruby with a cream head. No aroma. The taste is quite hoppy. Plenty of citrus and a little roasty malt flavour. Pretty good. Has the feel of a weak black IPA.
