Cask @ St. Urho’s Pub
Aroma is quite light with cocoa and nuts. Flavour is a bit odd with berries, toffee, hints of mint and nuts. Also some caramel character exists. Palate is a bit light. Decent.

Grumbo (2955) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2013
Cask at The Orange Tree, Chelmsford. I have had some excellent Dark Star beers before, but Partridge is a long way from being their best. It was just rather bland and uninspiring.
