September 14, 2015 at Tap East - cask handpull. Refractive deep burnt reddish copper, not much head - mottled creamy beige what there was (to be fair, pint was VERY full). Aroma simple and classic - light roast, mild herbal bitterness, no alcohol presence at all - dry, a bit nutty, not sweet - plenty of grain, with hints of rye and coffee beans. Taste follows right on ... it is a bit watery and still, finishes quick with a bit of baker’s chocolate dry earthiness in the finish - solid.

Cask in Tap East. Brown. Interesting, quite full of flavour, earth, a bit of diacetyl, burnt chocolate cake, bitter finish. Not perfect but pretty good. Svesse (8573) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - DEC 8, 2013
(Cask at Union Tavern, Westbourne Park, London, 22 Nov 2013) Dark brown colour, almost black, with frothy, beige head. Malty roasted nose with notes of caramel, chocolate and dark bread. Malty, roasted taste with coffee, chocolate, dark rye bread and a dry finish with a gentle bitterness. Rather light body, quite dry. Tasty and well balanced mild. Quite nice.
