500ml bottle shared with Finn at Fullers Spreadeagle. Espresso head, two-finger thick. Spotty lacing. Deep rosewood coloured body. Inviting aroma of roasted malts and dark fruits. Comprehensive taste profile including moments of cocoa, vanilla, smoke, plums and a slightly touch of molasses. Lingering warming heat to the ending. Full bodied. Smooth on the swallow. Lovely sipper (Croydon 27.11.2015).
