Review and Tasting

Sampled on 02/06/2014


Clear, deep tawny brown. Ring of tan foam rather than retentive head.


Reminiscent of a cross between old-fashioned antiseptic and Vic’s decongestant with notes of clove and vanilla.


Syrupy sweet. Sarsaparilla, clove and liquorice with vanilla and buttery toffee.


Sweetness disappears to leave lingering sarsaparilla, clove and liquorice
