Cask. Pours mahogany with a red cast. Tan cream head yielding good lacing. Aroma caramel, toast, herbs, dough, earthy, raisin, even hints of smoke and vanilla. Taste has malts to the fore with caramel notes and a medium to strong sweetness but this matures to a smooth bitter finish. Carbonation light to soft and overall a fine ale if hardly a stout.

Towey1989 (2698) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2017
Gravity at The Derby Winter Beer Festival. A slightly hazy brown colour with a frothy off white head. Aroma of toffee, chocolate, liquorice, some dark fruits, slight cookie dough, a little bready malts, a hint of raisin, biscuit and subtle spicy hops. Taste of toffee, chocolate, liquorice, bready malts, some dark fruits, raisin, slight biscuit, a little biscuit and subtle spicy hops. Medium bodied and an oily texture. A sweetish, raisin cookie finish. Wouldn’t say it’s a stout, more like a strong, premium bitter. Lots of toffee, biscuit and dried fruits, like a flapjack of some sorts. I like it.

ThirstyBird (2914) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 19, 2017
On cask pours a dark brown color with orange highlights and a tan head. The nose is fruity, some roast, chocolate. The taste is rich dark malt, dark fruit, chocolate ending dry and slightly roasty. The body is light+ and silky. Nice

Pehmeä, kevyt runko, makea, tumma ja rusinaa tai jotain hedelmää seassa. Miellyttävä.
