Cask - Dartford WMC. Pours dark yellow with a small white head. Quite thick and oily in the glass. Orange peel, piney hops and lemon on the nose. Strong grapefruit flavours, backed by resiny, lemon hops a rich caramel note and biscuity malts, also with a hint of its alcohol content. Smooth palate texture, low carbonation gives quite a crisp, refreshing mouthfeel despite the ABV with a final lingering bitterness. planky84 (3261) - Lee, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2012

A Mes rate: Gravicask at Fin’s excellent Merton Beer Festival.Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 23, 2009
Bright gold with a thin white head and good condition. The aroma is a fantastic blend of old school Tipex thinner, pear drops, massive fruity hops, plenty of sweet alcohol and yet a peppery dryness. Flavour is similar but just doesn’t quite sit right. Still good though and the alcohol is pretty wel hidden. Lots of pear in the finish with some eventual alcohol. Thick and juicy but not at all cloying. This split us all at the festival but I was one of those who really liked it.
Cask at the New Crown (JDW) in Southgate. Thanks Magicdave! Clear amber gold with a creamy white head. Sweet, obviously heavily alcoholic from the nose, but not harsh. Smooth, it coats the mouth but isn’t sticky. Lots of nice oak and vanilla flavours and subtle warmth. BeerCast_Rich (1906) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 10, 2013
[cask, Thomson’s Bar, Edinburgh ] Crystal clear golden amber pour, decent white head. Sweet oaked honey aroma. Big sweet sticky taste; honeysuckle, alcohol, creme caramel. This stands up to casking brilliantly [10062013 ]
