Gravity cask at Pigs Ear 2017 - Hackney. Pours dark brown with a frothy, beige head. The aroma has a good bit of rubber, nips of cocoa, lots of licorice. Medium sweet flavour with strong torched wood, some burnt licorice, strongly bitter ash. Medium bodied, lightly chewy, with fine carbonation. Finishes with lots of burnt fruitcake, more ash and licorice. Well, it's interesting, but just not that drinkable. So so overall.

Gravity at Flipping Frog, Rochester. Hoppy dark beer. Quite dry. Hops are a tad too assertive and nippy. Malt is too dry and fully attenuated for my taste. But OK.

Cask conditioned at The Castle Tavern, Oxford. Pale gold with white head. There is a light biscuity body to this, crisp, light which carries a fragrant, dryish citrus, lemon zesty hopped flavour. Easy on the palate, refreshing and light. Really decent session beer.

Kent Twelfth Night Squared
330ml bottle. Opaque, dark brown colour with average to huge, foamy, moderately to mostly lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Sweet-ish, toasty malty aroma, notes of caramel, vanilla, toffee, hints of red and blue berries, a touch of raisin; an initial impression of Bourbon BA reveals itself as unfounded, yeasty, leafy hints of blueberry and bramble finally predominate. Taste is sweet-ish, toasty malty, hints of caramel, molasses, toffee, liquorice, some blueberry and bramble, a papery touch; minimally warming, alcoholic finish. Strong but still rather drinkable.
