The Yew Tree Inn, Barfrestone, Kent

AndrewGood14 Jan 2006 Could have happily drunk this all night if I'd been up for a session. It was quite bitter with a far more agressive burnt flavour than I usually get from Black Cat. The finish was a short lived milkyness.
AndrewExcellent07 Jan 2006 A silver cream head on a black body. There was a strong burnt peanut taste to this and my guess that it was top of the barrel. Give it a day or 2 and it'll be absolutely stunning.
