3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask pour at AleSmith. Pours clear deep mahogany with a medium tan head, quite creamy with nice lacing. Aroma is caramel, coconut, toffee, perhaps a touch of bourbon. Flavor is the same, medium sweet, a lot of coconut for me. Very smooth. Despite the head the beer was nearly flat, but full bodied and creamy textured. Surprisingly different in many ways from the basic BA nut brown, but in my opinion not as good.
