<i>Gravity dispense at Pig’s Ear Festival 2008, London</i>
Dark amber color. Nice aroma of caramel, fudge and hops, elegant and interesting. The flavor is in line, but less interesting (more caramel and less hop cones and fudge); at least the final has more chocolate.

A Mes rate. Gravicask at Pigs Ear. Mid brown with a thin white head. Slight unbrewed malt in the aroma with a little tobacco. Fruity malt flavour, slight caramel with some bitterness in the finish and some more tobacco. Dull but inoffensive.

[Cask at the Hobgoblin, Reading.] Copper with a thin cream head; fruity malt aromas; caramel flvaour with some citrus fruit; clean citrus bitter finish. Pleasant enough, but not particularly seasonal.
