4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Strong, nutty, fruity, aroma with notes of liquorice and dark malt roastiness. Clear copper-brown body with decent and lasting, fine-bubbled, off-white head. Thick and malty chocolate flavour is nutty in character with some lightly salty, smoky, liquorice notes and roasty finishing bitterness. Rich, creamy, medium-full body with lively carbonation that awakens the tastebuds. I enjoyed this one in the bottle previously and find it to be every bit as satisfying on cask. Cask at GBBF 2005.
