Pigs Ear. Clear very dark brown beer. Softish palate, a bit dry. Rich malt with a slight dark feel. Not bitter. Very well balanced with rich dark fruit. Finishes with more dark character malt - almost coffee like. Light and dry.

Cask at GBBF 2011. A dark brown coloured pour with a medium off white head on top. Malty, fruity aroma. Tastes of dark fruit, sweet, malty, caramel. A rich tasting Christmas beer which I really enjoyed, rather strange to be drinking it at a summer beer festival.
