stravale (3019) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - FEB 29, 2012
Cask @ JDW Inverness
Caramel brown...slight haze...creamy frothy head...good lacing
Aroma - caramel malts...hint of yeast....some fruity malt
Taste of caramel malts...smooth malts...light bitter hops...some yeasty fruity ester...smooth toffee
Palate - soft carb...medium body..very smooth...creamy mouthfeel...oily texture. Finish has a slight hint of liquorice...increased bittereness...bitter hops come through much more...biscuity malt....lingering bit metallic bitterness.
Overall - Quire a good bitter with flavour but spoilt by that metallic edge on the bit over-lingering finish

justm (164) - Essex, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2012
Cask at Blue Boar, Billericay, Essex. Pours a dark copper with a tight off-white head. The aroma initially struck me as quite sugary sweet with an underlying malty bitterness. Raisin and biscuit notes developed further down the glass. Very bitter and a little oily across the tongue. It tastes of very bitter, almost burnt sugar which morphs into the bitterness that you find when chewing roasted malt. There is a little pleasant digestive biscuit taste but this quickly vanishes leaving a tangy slightly metallic dry bitter aftertaste. A bitter bitter.
