On cask at the Belfast Beer Festival, 2012

Chocolate brown with chestnut highlights and off white froth.
Musty fruit skin and toilety sulfur plus some red grape skin.
Cola, black grape, and soil then orange ring and lime sorbet hops.
Grapefruit skin finish and endless bitter citrus linger.

Interesting contrast between sweet and tart. Malts would suit a dark mild but there are some seriously citric (unidentified) USA hops. That numbing hop bite and roastiness combine to echo Peppermint Patties.

Another very British take on a US style.
