3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask, gravity dispense at Twickenham Beer Festival 2015. Black, decent foamy tan head. Aroma is smokey chocolate. Body is medium, smooth, soft carbonation. Taste is light, smooth malts, bourbon biscuit, chocolate, light smoke and salt. A great mild. True to style and falls short of being a stout, but still flavourful. Nice balance.
