Review and Tasting

Sampled on 15/08/2011

Appearance

Chestnut brown with off-white generous head.

Aroma

Reminiscent of Eccles cakes with malty, dried hay and dried fruit (raisons and figs).

Taste

Slightly bitter dried fruit (currant and sultana) sprinkled with zingy black pepper and served on overdone toast.

Aftertaste

Freshly ground black pepper with lasting baked currant fruitiness.
