2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dispensed via cask into an English half pint jug at the Sussex Arms, Twickenham Green, Jan ’12.
Pours very dark brown in colour with a thin white head.
On the nose - roasted malts, a hint of chocolate and a small dose of liquorice.
Flavours on the palate largely match those on the nose, perhaps a little dried fruit in there as well? Not overly complex in taste.
Slightly lacking in body and a little watery, a fairly dry finish.

A Sim rate (Manchester BF): Aroma is licquorice, sweet wine and quite alcoholic. Decent head and lace. Dark with a nice red translucence. Smoky, bitter, portery, but slightly watery in the finish. Watery, but not too much. Good. It’s probably the best one of the night.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask Red-shot end-of-scale brown beer with a B.C."H.". Roasted, burnt malts, grains and rubber tyres’ burnout. But nothing like a Speedway Stout, mind you - it’s British dignified. Sourish taste, with fresh oakwood, dry bread malts, chestnuts, and in the finish slightly bitterish liquorice. Medium bodied, slickness apparent, grist- or charcoal-. Nice porter, not meant to be overpowering, delivering just the goods. The overall impression is thus better than the individual marks.
