500ml ebony bottle. 4.2% ABV. Poured a heavily carbonated amber with huge frothy head and great lacing. Gorgeous malt berry nose with red wine notes. Strange burnt wood bitter flavour reminiscent of some stouts. Belies the tempting aroma. Neutral mouthfeel with long bitter finish. An unusual quite pleasant beer which I could find habit forming. The burnt flavour won’t be to everyone’s taste.
Cotteridge Convention III – May 2017 - Bottle share at the damp marquee tasting. As ’Whittingtons Cats Whiskers’, 4.6%. No apostrophe in cats? NO APOSTROPHE IN CATS?!?!? Dark amber orange brown, foamy light brown head leaves light lacing. Aroma is bretty, sugary, woody. Body is smooth, soft carbonation. Taste is thin, smooth malts, sugary, pretty simple and plain.

Bottle. Amber. Very drinkable, rich, tart, hoppy fruity bitter with a caramel malt base. Long dryish hoppy bitter finish. Liked this. (2008)
Lonick (2213) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 4, 2015
Bottle @home. Pours amber nice off white head. Malty caramel, toffee on the nose. Mainly caramel but with a light citrus after taste, nice enough. joet (2646) - Wilsonville, Oregon, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Medium deep ruddy brown, very effervescent which leans the taste toward and acidic tang, bitter herbal and piney edges emerge quickly and the finish is softly sweet. Fairly timid in terms of overall volume and expressiveness but solid. deanso (10150) - Chiang Mai, THAILAND - SEP 12, 2013
