Opaque black - brown beer, massive pale tan head. Nice toffee - caramel nose. Smooth palate, a little airy. Smooth malt with good dark toffee. Touch of rum and dark fruits. Finishes with the malt turning a little earthy and also creamy. All flavours very well integrated. Quite a light beer for it’s abv but with a wonderful richness of flavour.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours opaque coffee brown with 3 finger dark frothy cream head. Aroma of wood, spicy cinnamon and cloves? Some packaged raisin fruitiness. Taste immediately sweet but very quickly goes to a whisky sting then rolls into fermented raisin with tones with tones of rum sweetness. Finishes with a raisin tang that leaves a fermented earthy fruit feeling on the back of the tongue. The differences in aroma and taste lends a complexity that is smooth and delicious.
