Bottle at Pigs Ear Beer Festival 2013 - London. Pours clear amber with a creamy, off-white head. The nose holds leather fruits, lightly aged malts and dirty leaves. Light to medium sweet with notes of ripe fruits, faint wood, slight leafy bitterness, bready malts. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Moderate sweetness to finish with further leather, some toasted sugars. Nice aged character to this one. Solid ESA. DruncanVeasey (8260) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2014
Bottle. Muddy ruby with a slender beige collar. Aroma of mildew, sherry, exotic fungus, wet basement and beansprout. Beansprout, redcurrant, dank old sherry and cola flavour with attempts at salvaging roast and sake. Deeply strange. And more suited for the wok than the tulip.
