Cask at William Jolle (W’Spoons), Northwood Hills. A dark brown/ruby coloured pour with a thin off white head on top. Fruity, malty, caramel aroma. Tastes similar, fruity, malty, caramel, slightly roasty. Gary (2094) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2013 cask @ The King’s Arms. Uppnor Castle. Kent) A strange choice on tap in late june -but it was rather cold of course -thus this winter/summer warmer was fucken fine with me. Its a smoky deep brown colour,kinda beautiful but the head was too subtle for me. I wouldn’t say this beer had too much finesse really , it relies on rich tofee and chocolate vibes -married with booze in a simple but nice paced ale. sm89walt (2082) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 4, 2013
Cask - The Glass House (JDW), Norwich. Poured with a large, dense light tan head that lasted and laced. Roasted malt aromas, dried fruits and some coffee on the aroma. More roasted, malt, some coffee again, plenty of dark & dried fruits with a dry, roasted malt/hop bitterness on the finish. Medium body, mostly soft in the mouth with a creamy, lingering finish.
