UPDATED: SEP 17, 2017 Rich dark colour good creamy head, sour and tart taste that mellows the more you drink. Burnt hoppy taste slightly nutty. After my initial disappointment at the lack of dandelion and burdock flavour the aroma hit me half way down the glass. On Cask at Bloxwich Showman SamVimes21 (567) - - MAR 21, 2017
