SilkTork (5919) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2003
Cask, Claret Free House, Near Croyden. Darkest russet brown with cappuccino head. Initially nasty cheap hand soap floral aroma but becomes more woody and raisin like as drink progresses. Sweet stout flavours with a mingle of liquor. Mmm, this grows in flavours - moving into Imperial Stout territory. A damn fine ale, beautifully served - slightly warmer than previous two drinks in the same pub, as appropriate for a beer of this style.
