Cask @ York Brewery, november 07. Clear, deep dark copper color with a medium, light tan head. Deep fruity flavor with some very slight earthy hop notes. Ends with a dried fruits touch. Deep, profound, rasiny fruity aroma. Medium to full palate, caramel feeling but ends quite dry and earthy. Excellent strong english ale.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - OCT 14, 2007
Gravity, Oxford CAMRA beer festival. Simple brown, light tan head. Deep leathery caramel aroma (the sort of smell that touches some buried kid-in-candystore sort of ecstasy), soft chocolate, coffee roast backbone and a bit of toasty biscuit. Lovely deep caramel and rum sweetness given texture and depth by a lovely roasty edge. Soft, full, inviting. Seriously impressive beer, and my beer of the festival.

Comments: I was not particularly enthusiast about this one when getting a small sample, but I had a half-pint at the 3-legged-mare in York and it was in awesome condition. I think it may have been my favourite cask ale ever, or close. Marvellously crisp, dense, almost chewy dark malts bursting with delicious toastiness. Bright hop bitterness, stupendous balance.
