On cask at Cloisters. Pours a dark brown colour with a thick light tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate and roasty malt. Similar flavours with a very nutty linger. Moderate carbonation and a creamy mouth-feel. Not bad just too nutty for me. anders37 (26824) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 14, 2011

A Mes rate: Gravicask at Pigs Ear.KnutAlbert (6760) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 17, 2007
Amazing how hit and miss cask ale is. One mans trash is anothers treasure. It has to be said this was really hitting the sweet spot. Black and opaque with a thin beige head. Nose of coffee. malt and bread with a very slight lick of hops. Not overly complex but it’s a glorious smell. Stunning flavour, brimming with complexity. Beautiful fruit, smoky malt, rubber, ink, car tyres, bitter chocolate and a superb bitter finish. Great condition, awesome mouthfeel. All this from a comparitively low abv beer. Pretty much everything I could want from an English stout. Amazing.
Cask at Pig’s Ear BF 2007.
Fine stout, coffee, grain, sweetness, dry finish. Not earth-shattering, but a fine ale. imdownthepub (14983) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2007
Cask conditioned at Harbury Beer Fest ’07. Black with slight cream head. Smooth and creamy stout, very deep and chocolatey with dry coffee notes. Quite fruity in the latter, warmer mouth but finishes quite quickly.
