500ml bottle shared with Ashton McCobb. Pours almost clear amber, thick rocky white head. Aromas of demerara sugar, syrup. Taste is woody, tannins, stewed tea, sweet. Chicory bite.

JorisPPattyn (9981) - Ursel, BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2016
Yellow-cream head over hazy amber beer with a mossy sheen. Rainwater, toffee, caramel, restsugars suggested in the nose. Bitter-vegetable, underlying caramel. Light to medium bodied, feels quite carbonated. Average.

Thank you for sharing! Sampled 500 ml. bottle @ Gents Bierfestival 2016. Dark fox red, off-white bubbles. Nose is dull paper, oxidation, cardboard, stale,… Taste is fizzy old paper, stale plaster, dough, insecticide, herbal, band-aid, old paper,… Body is paper, stale, plaster, insecticide, fizzy,… not a fan, I don’t get the appeal.

20/VIII/16 - bottle @ Gents Bierfestival - BB: n/a (2016-881) Thanks to the Belgian ratebeer crew for sharing some beers today!

Clear reddish beer, small creamy beige head, pretty stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: weird, something bad, overripe to rotten fruits, medlar. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: weird bitterness, some banana, pretty bitter, tannins, sugary touch. Aftertaste: overripe fruits, malty, cow fodder, unpleasant bitterness.

gunnar (9085) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAR 25, 2016
500 ml bottle from Ales By Mail. Pours clear deep red/amber with a big creamy off-white head, very good looking. Weak sweet fruity aroma, some roasted malts and a good dash of liquorice. Good liquorice taste, moderate dry, high carbonated, long dry liquorice finish, very good one.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2010
Cask Conditioned Gravity Dispense St Albans BF 2010. An amber coloured beer with off-white wisps of head. A fruity aroma with berries and wood. Fruity malts in the mouth. A nice old fashioned stronger English ale which is nicely boozy.

3.4
DruncanVeasey (8226) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2009
Cask handpull, SIBA Champions’ Fest 09. Aroma mint sauce, meat stock, jellied red fruit, wood and sweat. That’s what my semi-legible scribblings say, anyway. Had about 20 after hours halves lined up by this stage like a mad scientist, and things were starting to get a bit...shabby. Rummy wood notes, chew of raisin, light body, hint of aniseedy spice maybe. Dryish hop finish. Odd but enjoyable.

2.9
Idiosynkrasie (7508) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - DEC 16, 2014
500ml bottle. Hazy, dark golden amber colour with small, frothy, fading, off-white head. Malty aroma with toffee notes, some malt-spiciness with hints of lovage, soup cube, marmite, dusty dry fruit, port. Taste is minimally sweet malty, some malt-spiciness, again hints of toffee, marmite, port, raisins. Not fully unbefitting in its shopworn, old-fashioned style considering the maintenance of traditionalism one may encounter at least to a minor degree at Oxbridge. Nice to revisit an historic Ale for catching a glimpse of it... once.

3.4
MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2010
A Mes rate: Cask at the Market (No) Porter.
Semi hazy amber gold with a thin white film topping. Big and fruity with some candy sugar and barley. The extra booze is showing slightly but it’s not killing it. Sugary finish with some late dryness. Lots of length. Straight forward but enjoyable.

3.5
AshtonMcCobb (6581) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 11, 2015
Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - a lovely lava colour. A nice fluffy head. Nose - pancakes and syrup. Taste - wood and then syrup again. Bitter salad leaves. Then wood tannins return. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry woody tannic finish. Overall - gnarly but good.
