Cask. Dark amber colour, not much head. Perfume and fruity hops in the aroma along with some hints of dark berries. A very nice flavour of spices, caramel malts and sweater fruity hops. Really nice flavour. Spice and fruity aftertaste.

harrisoni (19701) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2014
Cask gravity at White Cliffs BF 2014. Milky way chocolate bar from my childhood. Very milk chocolate. Some fruit. Not really my kind of beer but it’s fine. Nice chocolate though

2.8
TBone (18666) - Pori, FINLAND - JAN 28, 2014
Bottled 500ml (AbM)
Deep clear ruby-red color, small steady beige head, lace. Caramalty, grassy, burned sugar aroma. Light-bodied, suprsingly weak palate for this ABV. Flavor has similar elements than the nose: caramalt, grassy hoppyness, bread, toasted sugar. Too sweet and lacks decent bitterness for "wolf’s bite".
