Cask at the Victoria Inn, Colchester. Pours almost black with a small beige head. Aroma of hops, chocolate, fruit, roasted malt and a touch of coffee. Toward medium sweetness with medium plus bitterness. Medium body and slight oily texture. Carbonation is soft. Finish is dry and has a great level of bitterness. A nice beer and pub to have celebrated my rating number 2000.

Quite sweet and deliciously chocolatey from the malt. Medium body with some understated tropical fruit notes from the hops. Not too bitter, not too sweet. Fits somewhere between stout and black IPA in my book. A good spot.

jjsint (2837) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2016
Gravity cask at the 2016 Cambridge Beer Festival. Properly black - OK dark brown but just - with a creamy tan head and an impressive amount of natural carbonation. Over-roasted coffee competes with pine needles and turpentine for the aroma. Bitter taste with fruitiness of the hop dominating. Taste is slightly acrid due to the intensity of the roasted malt but I can live with that.
