Beese (2607) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2014
Cask gravity at the Watford Beer Festival 2014. Poured a clear amber, with a rocky off white head. Aroma of fruit salad sweets, caramel and cooked fruit. Flavours were a total mess of spice, grass, Xmas pudding, grain and copper. Finish was toffee, malt and unripe fruit. Absolute overkill.

Towey1989 (2569) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2016
Cask at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) A clear deep amber colour with a medium white head. Aroma of toffee, rum & raisin, red berries, slight orange peel, a little bready malts and some spicy hops. Taste of toffee, fruitcake, rum & raisin, alcohol, some red berries, slight cinnamon, maybe other spices, a little orange, a hint of chocolate and subtle acidity. Medium bodied and a slick texture. A long, warming, spicy fruit finish. A really boozy Christmas beer, good amount of spicy fruit but for me, maybe a bit too much alcohol.
