FatPhil (13867) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 6, 2011
Cask (William IV, RBESG2011 Saturday)
Quite stodgy bitter aroma. Fuller in the mouth, cleaner and more distinct nutty and husky components. Woody finish, pretty solid. Nicely dry and very well attenuated. A touch of mushroom too just once or twice. but good nonetheless.
