3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask dispense at the Half Moon, Windlesham (Feb ’12).
Pours a dark mahogany brown with a thin beige / off-white head.
Chocolate, roasted malts and dried fruit aroma.
Well balanced flavours in the taste, molasses, dried fruits, a little spice, slighty musty tasting, biscuity and roasted malts in the background with a hint of chocolate and coffee.
I enjoyed the mouthfeel of this beer, carbonation quite moderate with a slightly burnt/smoked flavour in the aftertaste with a sour edge.
Overall a very pleasant winter beer that warms the palate.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask @ Charlies Cph.
Pours dark mahogany with a small, staying, creamy, beige head. Aroma has lovely chocolate, light roasted and good hazel notes. Lowish carbonation, impressive creamy mouthfeel - especially for the ABV. Flavour is sweet, cocoa with hazel syrup, light coffee and chocolate. A bit short-lived in its finish, but with okay malty dryness. Fine beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask (GBBF2011, Wed)
Darkish brown, with a small head. Slightly musty aroma. There’s some wet sheep in the mouth, and I guess in the aroma too when you look for it. Roasted and slightly coffee-like finish, but also very grainy. Alas the spicy biltong dimished our ability to taste this one, which is a shame, it’s a good beer.
