3.1
Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2016
Cask by gravity at The Station House, Durham, £3.50/pint. Dark, ruby-brown beer with a very thin, cream coloured head. The nose is thick, rich and appealing with lots of burnt toffee, cream and light ash. The taste is strikingly reminiscent of Rolo sweets with a huge chocolate and toffee hit. It’s full-bodied and tannic, evocative of heavy red wine while retaining a sugary sweetness throughout. There are some very pleasant flavours but on the whole it’s a little too sweet and rich for me - a half would have been enough.

3.5

3.6

Cask at the Fieldhouse, Solihull. Poured almost black with a frothy light tan head. The aroma is light sweet malt. The flavour is moderate sweet with a smoky malt, light liqourice, smooth creamy caramel palate. Full bodied with flat carbonation.
