2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask @ Wenlock Arms, Hoxton
Lovely looking, garnet black with a fine light tan head. Aroma is of caramel, toffee and a hint of smoke. Flavour is molasses, some coffee and even a touch of tar. Mouthfeel is thin and a little disappointing.
