3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at GBBF 2016. It pours clear deep brown with a medium beige head. The aroma is earthy, bitter - sweet, gravel, coffee, hint of plastic and balsamic vinegar. The taste is smooth, bitter - sweet, caramel, dried fruits, toast, pepper and fruit cake with a mellow finish. Light+ body and soft carbonation. I am not so keen on the aroma, but found it to be well-rounded and drinkable enough.

Cask at Chippenham Beer Festival. Deep brown. Yay- found a mild amongst the last few undrunk barrels at the tail end of the last night of the fest. It’s dark brown, maybe a little watery but with pleasant flavours of chocolate, malt and a light roastiness. Very easy to knock this one back. You really can imagine slaking your thirst with this after a day down the mines.
