nimbleprop (8082) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 24, 2017
On cask at Churckey, pours a very watery brown with no head. Nose is just OK, some detritus, some soggy bread, black tea, some dried apple. Flavor is a bit of a let down... really just heavy black tea, some malts and bread, but really one note. Finishes watery.

chinchill (4760) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 22, 2017
From a cask at the January 2017 ACAF. Dark clear copper body. Durable bubbly head. Very appealing aroma dominated by toffee but with some brown bread. More richness and complexity in the flavor which is also stronger than the aroma suggests. Relatively hoppy finish and aftertaste. Excellent bitter-sweet balance. Very nice.

Handpump @Ma che siete venuti a f (Rome). Ambrata carica, schiuma bianco sporca molto persistente. Al naso sentori di malti, nocciola, mela, erba tagliata. In bocca ben equilibrata ma un po stantia, forse non freschissima. Corpo leggero, carbonazione soft. Anonima.
