4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
On cask at Churchkey. Pours a watery, opaque black with some fizzy brown head. Nose is a really nice mix of malt, vanilla and berries. Flavor is also nicely balanced, berries, vanilla, malt, caramel, toasted bread, a little chocolate. Full, sweet, fruity finish. Soft and well put together. A very drinkable treatment of PQP.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at CK. Weak to no head. Spots of lace. Nose is vanilla, blueberries, cherries. Sweeter, dessert. Taste is subtler than the cherry version, some artificial sweetener and cream soda. Not as rich in taste. Roasty, but muddled flavors.
