Cask: Seasonal - Winter.
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 @ Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. Very dark red (or brown if there’s no natural light on the beer). Has a creamy-smooth head with a red berry sweetness in both its aroma and taste. Relatively smooth tasting.

On tap somwhere! Clear dark brown beer. Light semi dry palate. A little sourish malt, lightly toasted. Fruit in the undertone. Finishes dry, hoppy and bitter. Tasty if a bit too bitter.

shoulderbroken (2379) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 13, 2012
Cask at Bree Louise. Dark brown, not much beige head. Aroma is fruity and roast malt. Bit of chocolate and a bit of citrus. Washing up liquid lemon bizarrely. Taste is very smooth, dark fruit, lots of roastiness, and a touch of stink, but not bad.

Leighton (12615) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2012
Gravity cask at the Bree Louise, London. Pours clear, ruby-brown with a soft, filmy white head. Perfumey, floral nose with some dark malts. Light sweet flavor, dark malts, some mild burnt wood, ripe citrus. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Light sweet finish, some dry burnt wood and grass, toast, citrus rind. Interesting and decent mild.

tombyars (1425) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - MAR 11, 2012
Tasted this porter in the Last Post, Paisley (JDW) in January 2010. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear black ruby in colour with a thin buff coloured open head which quickly disappeared. Poor lacing and thin watery mouthfeel. Sweet malty aroma, short in intensity with hints of black treacle and burnt toast. Dark malt complex with black malt to the fore, giving distinctive dusty carbon notes. Sweet flavours of treacle toffee, roast coffee, bitter chocolate and a hint of wine gums comes through despite the thin body and low OG. Bitterness really increases into the aftertaste with dry dusty hops and roasted nuts. Finish is still on the dry side with bitter dark chocolate notes evident. An excellent session ale and well recommended. Another decent dark addition to the titanic portfolio.
