Review and Tasting

Sampled on 18/06/2012

Appearance

Appearance: (2011 vintage, bbd 06-Dec-14) dark reddy brown with a quickly fading beige head and spotted lacing.

Aroma

Rich, dried fruit/slightly burnt fruit fortified by generous alcohol with chocolate, roasted grain and old oak wardrobe.

Taste

A huge yet approachable ale with chocolaty malt, prune and berry fruit. The high alcohol content competes with and effectively balances syrupy sweetness.

Aftertaste

Bittersweet with berry fruit and bitter tannins. Lingering note of overdone, charcoal covered, toast spread with raspberry jam.
