shoulderbroken (4255) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 7, 2011
Cask at JDW Holloway. Dark red brown with bubbly off white head. Aroma yeast, very fruity, bit of pear, quite vinous. Taste is sweet, raspberry jam. Medium bodied with sweet finish. Nice. The_Osprey (7890) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2016
Cask handpull at The Crosse Keys Bishopsgate as ’Hook Norton Twelve Days’, 5.5%. Almost brown with a reddy orange hue, translucent, foamy diminishing tan head. Aroma is brandy and dark chocolate up front, more airy and indistinct later on. Body is smooth, quite light, low carbonation. Served quite cold for cask - really felt this one all the way down. Taste is raisin, carpet, mixed spice, brandy, noticeable booze. Quite dry and well attenuated. Not sugary sweet like many in the style. Quite good, but I’d be happy with just one half. fiulijn (20427) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 8, 2005
