Cask (GBBF2011, Friday)
Lovely milk chocolatey aroma. Rich roasty body, smooth and milky palaye. Gentle burntness, very tasty. Some gentle stale coffee in the finish. Anna thinks the finish is more chocolatey, but for me it’s milky coffee.

Bottle at The Garrick, pours black with a small white head. Nose brings out lots of roast and some dry espresso. Flavour isn’t as great unfortunately, but still pleasant, with very lightly roasted malt and some espresso. Medium bodied and pleasant. Decent stuff.

500 ml bottle. L3141. BB May/14. (K-Citymarket) Kouvola, Finland.
