Cask, gravity, at Northamptonshire Beer Festival ’09. Very dark brown. Sweet marmite malt aroma. Sweet malt taste, oily and cloying. Mid bitter finish. Tough, chewy beer. dnas2 (705) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2009
Gravity at the Bree Louise, London. Porter-like appearance with a good head. Coffee and dark chocolate in the scent. Well balanced but unusually the sweetness comes before the bitterness. Citrus/lime tinge in the mouth, quite sticky, some berries on the end. A bit too sweet.
