Cask conditioned at The Cask Pub & Kitchen, Pimlico, London. Black with ruby hue and off white head. There is an initial sweetness with a coffee background, light, americano style and roasted malts. Some port wine notes following through later on. Pretty good. downender (9006) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2011
Cask-conditioned at the Cask Pub and Kitchen 19/08/2011. Near black in colour with next to no head. Charred, chocolate and black coffee aroma. Flavour was sweet up front, with some caramel and dark fruits, before bitter chocolate and roasted malts took over, culminating in a dry finish. Very good.
