The Fox. Tap takover. Opaque dark brown beer, tidy cream colour head. Palate is airy, semi dry and slightly crisp. Mild dark malts and a nice mild malt cream. Tangy sweetness, very mild maple. Trace of dark fruits. Finishes airy and semi dry. Indistinct hop bitterness. Pretty drinkable.
Keg at the Fox - London. Pours clear black-brown with a creamy khaki head. The aroma holds some sugary chocolate, burnt marshmallows, dark earth. Medium sweet flavor with lots of dark sugar, burnt grains, some vanilla pods, scorched earth and wood bitterness. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Finishes sweet with moderate bittersweet cocoa, more scorched earth, dried dark fruits. Not bad. allmyvinyl (11321) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 23, 2014
