3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks Dany) split with Matts_Property, pours black with a slight reddish tinge and small ring of tan head. Aroma is balanced between roasted malts, honey and cedar, with the cedar becoming more pronounced the more you smell. Flavour is similarly so, with cedar, honey, slightly burnt roasted malts and wood all prevalent - the cedar and burnt / wood notes lingering. Again, not a huge fan of the cedar though it’s not as strong as in Either, and this is beautifully crafted nonetheless. More well-rounded than Either and I enjoyed it slightly more.
