sound67 (784) - Offenbach, GERMANY - OCT 12, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2017 Cask at the Robin Hood Beer Festival 2017. Dark brown with reddish tint. Mildly sweet aroma of dark preserved fruit and sweet malts. Not too watery. Initial taste is sweetish, of red berries, mostly cherry, and dark chocolate. Bitter chocolate in the middle, leading to an even ,ore bitter finish. Aftertaste is fruity again, again mostly cherries. Not bad.

Cask at the Beacon Hotel, 31/05/17. I was concerned about this one, had it a few years ago and remembered it being an awesome beer... nil aroma. Ruby aka cola brown. Thick beige head. Sweet and malty. Chocolate, hmmm... Ovaltine, to be precise. Thick bodied. Oily. Soft carbonation. Short finish. Body neutral - well balanced it just slips down. Superb stuff.
