Cask at the Gallows Bird XV Real Ale Festival, Espoo, Finland.brownyonder (266) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 13, 2012
Dark reddish brown colour with small off-white head.
Milk coffee, roasted malt and some sweetness in aroma. Mild milk coffee and roasted malt in dry flavour. Too much coffee in aroma for me.
Dark brown chocolate colour and decent white head. Chocolate and malt, but with a bitter edge.
