Gravity cask at the Bree Louise. Pours a dark, ruby-brown with a fine, foam head. Bit of ripe fruits in the nose, some caramel, toasted malts. Medium sweet flavor, nice toast that merges into roast, light cocoa, some leafy bitterness. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Some toasted sugar in the finish, light bread, toast, mild candied sugar, some cocoa. Not bad.
