COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dark and malty, the appearance doesn’t prepare you for a crispness of taste. Lighter than it looks, it is very drinkable and beautifully smooth.

DruncanVeasey (6950) - NUNEATON, Top 24, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2013
500ml bottle. Glossy mahogany with a fine beige foam. Enticing mushy black cherry, Westmalle Dubbel, chick pea and flowering shrub aroma. Flavour almost violently unpleasant with chlorine and TCP off notes lapsing into shrub and cherry liqueur chocolate. Seriously mixed bag. Will grit teeth and get through it.
