Pint at the Crosse Keys JDW.

A: Dark black with a ruby tinge, medium head, well retained, didn’t leave a whole lot of lacing.

S: Smoked meat, dark chocolate and a big hit of smoke.

T: Dark chocolate, quite meaty, burnt charcoal, decent bitterness, smoke.

M: Light body, decent amount of carbonation, went down well.

O: Reminiscent of Schlenkerla Rauchbier Märzen not easy to classify, but very drinkable.

36th CAMRA Cotswold beer festival (July 2012) in the lovely 15th century Tithe Barn was the setting for my tasting of this beer.

Gravity poured pint: dark amber/brown body with a tan coloured head of foam.

The nose was semi-sweet molasses: chocolate and toffee esters mostly.

The taste was also semi-sweet with the dark chocolate and toffee from the aroma coming through again, add some liquorice and caramel into the flavour stakes and a smooth body feel and you’ve got a very drinkable Porter in your hands. This was my last beer at the festival and although my taste buds were most likely not at their best: this beer certainly was.
