Drank this at the Bees Knees at the Springhead Brewery itself. This could be my lounge! Couldnt wait to taste it but spent a few seconds on the smell...caramel, chocolate, toast, earthy, vanilla. the opened my eyes and had a look...black, clear, tan foam,. Then the first mouthful...medium sweetness, lightly bitter.... full body, creamy, soft carbonation, long finish, The best at the brewery...but my opinion!

Lip smacking stuff!. The Depth of flavour is intense and lingers in the mouth for a pleasingly long time. More of this please Springhead!

Towey1989 (2224) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2015
Cask at The Holy Inadequate, Etruria. A deep brown colour with a medium off white head. Aroma of nuts, roasted oats, subtle coffee, some vanilla and toffee. Taste of nuts, some chocolate, subtle marshmallow, burnt toffee, some tartness and fruitcake. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A soft, toasty bitterness in the finish with some tartness. A complex beer with nutty, chocolate and toffee notes but a little bit tart. Part of me loves this, the other dislikes it.

[Waterloo Beer Festival, 2014] - Springhead Brewery The Leveller, 4.8%. Dunkelbraun mit rtlichen Reflexen. Schokolade, Kaffee, etwas Rauch im Aroma. Recht voller Krper, trotzdem noch etwas wssrig. Im Antrunk trocken, trotz Kaffee Note auch eine florale Hopfenbitterkeit. Kaffee dominiert die Mitte, wird im Abgang durch erhhte Bitterkeit zum Espresso. Nachhall weiter bitter und trocken, kaffeeartig.
