5th August 2008. On tap at GBBF. Slightly sour start. Doesn’t really have that oatmeal silkiness or smoothness. Very slightly fruity. Leighton (22304) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2012
Cask at GBBF 2012, London. Pours rich brown with a fine, bubbly head. Rich chocolate aroma with moderate roast, some char. Medium sweet flavor with dark chocolate, dark toast, modest earthy bitterness. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Faint dryness to finish with loads of rubust yet restrained chocolate and roasted malts. Superb. harrisoni (19327) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2008
Cask at GBBF 08. Black, thin tan head. Hoppy liquorice aroma. Peppery hop, tarry, liquorice mlats. It’s a wee bit odd. Hops are too dominant and the liquorice isn’t my favourite flavour. Hops have a bit of cat pee to them. jtclockwork (17264) - , New Jersey, USA - JAN 11, 2011
Bottle. Pours black with thin tan head. Watery. Nose of sweet chocolate, grain and oat. Taste is grainy water, some oats and chocolate, Thin. Might have waited too long to open this one.
