Review and Tasting

Sampled on 15/12/2012

Appearance

(sample best before 11-Jul-14) Clear, dark red-brown with one finger thick beige head and spotted lacing.

Aroma

Flat coke-like nose with cherry fruit, balsamic and faint hickory smoke aromas.

Taste

Sweet 'n' sour, cherry fruit palate with aged balsamic and barbeque sauce flavours. Very interesting flavours but only those who have acquired a taste for this distinctive beer will finish a bottle, let alone seek a second.

Aftertaste

Slightly tart cherry jam, cigar and oak finish.
