Uzupełnienie z notatek. Po bardzo przyjemnym double stoucie, wizytując kiedyś Piw Paw w Warszawie sprbowałem tego specyfiku. Niestety piwo strasznie nijakie, nie jest tak źle jak w koncernowym, ale totalnie sie tu nic nie dzieje.

Towey1989 (2558) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2016
Cask at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) A clear deep amber colour with a medium white head. Aroma of sweaty feet, caramel, fruit, some nuttiness and slight spicy hops. Taste of caramel, nuts, fruit, a hint of sulphur and slight spicy, earthy hops. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A dryish, malty bitterness in the finish. A decent, smooth, malty beer but its all malt and fruit. An average premium bitter.

Cask in the Old Doctor Butlers Head. Deep reddish amber colour, thin white foam. Rich, full malty flavours with a pronounced bitter hoppy finish, earthy/spicy rather than floral/citrus. A most satisfying pint.
