Cask (William IV, Leyton, Brodies Christmas Cracker 2009)
Chocolate cake! Massive sweet body. Very cakey palate. Perhaps too sweet and a little less than fresh, but this is so choc full of positive tastes. Finish alas has a slightly salty metallic tin. or zinc twang on the teeth. So massively cakey, it may be sweet, but it’s fun!
