2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled 11/05/13. A black beer with a little grey head. Really dry in the nose but a bit of unwelcome aqcidity in the mouth. Showing signs of infection. Troublesome.
Cask at the Wild Boar. Poured a murky dark brown with a frothy off white head. The aroma is smoky roast malt, light yeast. The flavour is moderate to light liqourice bitter with a light, yeasty, medicinal, dry coffee palate. Light bodied with soft carbonation. imdownthepub (15333) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2014
Cask conditioned at The White Horse, Banbury. Black with cream head. The description above is creamy and that is just what this is, there is a milky coffee flavour to the malts, quite sweet and fruity, hints of liquorice perhaps. It gets a little cloying through the pint but still pretty reasonable. Stout? not sure. DruncanVeasey (8283) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2012
Cask handpull, The Shoes, Nuneaton, 26/04/12. Pitch skimmed with yellow-tan. Blackberry, brimstone aroma drizzled with weak milky coffee. Watery with indistinct charred wood notes; blackcurrant, coffee. Flick of ash for dessert. Decent flavours that need turning up. deanso (10101) - Chiang Mai, THAILAND - APR 18, 2012
