The_Osprey (9723) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2016
Cask handpull at Hamilton Hall London as ’Black Sheep Riggwelter’. Dark brown with a ruby hue to the light, foamy beige head leaves very full lacing. Aroma is airy even as it drains. Get some chemical later on, some glue. Body is a touch frothy with soft carbonation. Taste is toasted teacake, toast, black pepper, prunes, glue, rum-like booze, salty finish with some liquorice stick. Burnt astringency with a lasting tang. Big flavour but it’s quite harsh for its abv. I want to love it but I don’t. A half was too much. DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2006
