Another perfect hel and verdoemenis. Don’t know if it’s the name, but I do taste some of the bordeaux wine barrel. Started the Borefts Beer Festival with this one, and it was the best of the day.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
24th September 2010. Borefts Beer Festival.
Opaque black beer - residual suddy white head. Dry semi crisp palate. Rich minerally dark chocolate and a little coffee. The Bordeaux is quite subtle but is there in the undertone supporting the beer very well. Gets sweeter and creamier before a dry finish. Very well joined up.
