Cask at The White Horse, Parsons Green on 24 November 2012. Poured a very dark brown, with a thin off-white head. Aroma of burnt sugar, dark malt and bourbon. Vanilla in the flavour, with sweet fruits and biscuit. Finish was very sweet; toffee, boiled sweets and cake.

Theydon_Bois (18709) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2012
Cask at White Horse Parsons Green, Old Ale Festival - 23/11/12. Very dark mahogony brown vergeing on light black with a thin tan head that escapes to the edge of the glass and leaves a film. Nose is bourbon, wood, dark fruits, roast malts. Taste comprises toffee, prunes, dates, wood, bourbon, ,alts, touch of booze. Full bodied, smooth on the palate, dry bourbon infused finish. A very well balanced and most excellent beer!

Pigs Ear. Almost opaque red - brown beer, little pale tan head. Smooth palate, slightly dry. Tangy fruits with a mild medicinal - cinnamon flavour. Mild vanilla wood, trace of bourbon (pretty subtle). Finishes semi dry. Fruity and a little spicy. I think this one should have stayed in the barrel a bit longer. Decent though.

Scopey (14014) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2012
Cask at White Horse SW6. It pours very dark brown with a small light tan head. The nose is dark berry, mince pies, spice (particularly cinnamon and clove), jam, toasted coconut and vanilla. The taste is blackcurrant, blueberry, vinous, jammy, wood, earth, faint bourbon, light alcohol warmth, vanilla, nutmeg and clove. Medium body and soft carbonation. Fruity, lighter than expected (but very drinkable) and well balanced. I thought this worked very well. Delicious.

Leighton (20605) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2012 Cask at The White Horse Old Ale Festival, London. Pours clear brown with a fine, tan cream head. Tangy berry aroma with lightly smokey malts. Medium to big sweet flavor with tasteful spices, ripe and dry fruits, definitely a bit of tang, brown sugar. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Lightly sticky to finish with more winter spices and tangy fruits, especially berries. The spices really save this beer.

jackl (7567) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Cask @ The White Horse On Parsons Green Old Ale Festival. The pour’s deep brown with a tiny off-white head. The nose is rich toffee, caramel malt, spicy fruit cake. Hints of vanilla and woody bourbon. The taste is more fruit cake, some peppery hop, wood, cherry meat and mild booze. Flavorful, but somewhat underweight in the body. Overall, pretty decent.
