Leighton (17210) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2014
Draft at the Great British Beer Festival 2014, Day 3 - London. Pours rich brown with a frothy beige crown. Light ashy roast pervades this guy, with some burnt leaves and earthy minerals. A little watery, though. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Faint ashes and bitter cocoa in the finish, but mostly it’s watery. But still, nothing offensive here.

SilkTork (5498) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2014
JDW, Rochester. Black beer with coffee, vanilla, butter and black fruit flavours. It sounds better than it tastes. Too much coffee aroma, and too much grease.
