Review and Tasting


Sampled on 15/12/2011

Appearance:

Clear, pale golden.

Aroma:

Peaty, citrus, waxy nose with lime zest, coal tar soap, graphite, vegetal and grilled pineapple aromas.

Taste:

Monster smoky, peaty, salty, almost barbeque charcoal palate, made more approachable by sweet liquorice and faint vanilla.

Aftertaste:

Barley water flavours struggle for attention in the long tar influenced smoky, salty finish.
