Cask. Aroma stewed fruit with Demerara sugar. Poursruby amber brown with thin scummy top. Taste has caramelized malts and lots of fruit. Texture is oily and coats the palate with a yeasty grainy after taste.I suspect this may be towards the barrel end.

Fin (10837) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2016
Cask at NWAF, Derby, Thursday, 18th February 2016 Good bitterness and a pleasantly fruity beer, quite a malty number, a touch of biscuit and bread. This drinks a lot easier than the abv might suggest. I didn?t mind this at all. A6 A4 T7 P3 Ov13 3.3

niquillis (2752) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2014
On cask at Huntsman, Cheadle. Pours amber with off white head. Very easy drinking for it’s strength and probably the best Falstaff beer I’ve had in a while. Good alcohol hit and a caramel tinge with a good level of hops.

Gravicask at the Bricklayers Arms Derby Beer Fest. It pours deep amber, with a thin off-white film. The nose is wood, ciabatta, oily, caramel, light sourness and dried fruit. The taste is sweet, oily, fig, raisin, oak, caramel, light spice and big alcohol warmth, with a long dry finish. Medium to full body, soft carbonation and sticky mouth-feel. Decent.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 11, 2007
Half pint pulled at The Jolly Farmer in Bramley (Surrey), a clear dark amber with a thin foamy head. A rich caramal malt aroma. A full and rich palate, but still comes through smooth, with a good hoppy touch in the finish. A touch of orange in the malty flavour.
