Garnet black with creamy tan film.
Raspberry, raw brown sugar and roast nose - sweet.
Liquorice sweets, blackberry, a roasty hit, then some orangey hops.
Coffee candy end and rindy linger.
Light to medium, round and fizzy.

Considerable sweetness a but whack of bitter, too - from both roast and IBUs. Some very American hops in there. Balanced, maybe a touch thin, but interesting interplay of influences.

Handpump pint at the Rake.

A: Clear dark brown body with lots of bright ruby highlights under a finger of creamy, persistent tan foam. Tons of lace. Great.

S: Very sweet, with milk chocolate, molasses, vanilla, and some nice herbal hops. Terrific aroma.

T: Chocolate, caramel, coffee, and spicy, herbal hops. Long sweet finish. Sharp roast on the aftertaste gives a bit more astringency than I'd like, but it's quite tasty - and the alcohol is completely unnoticeable.

M: Medium bodied and surprisingly full of lively carbonation. Very effervescent for a cask.

O: This was a terrific beer in its own right, and I was especially pleased to find something so flavorful and strong on cask in the UK. It's ok, Brits, you can actually drink a beer that's over 5% now and then - they can be really, really good!

Cheers!
