Theydon_Bois (9960) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2012
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.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 18, 2012
Cask. Clear and pretty reddish brown with a dense beige head leaving laces. The nose has more dark dried fruits than actual roast. Fairly light body and now a slight roastiness but again the dried fruit dominates. Subtle whiffs of licorice and ashes. Dry, lightly hopped finish. 170312

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.
