Pours a hazy amber colour with a white head. Aroma of caramel malts, ginger and chocolate. Flavour of sweet caramel malts, grassy hops, chocolate, wood and sourness. Full bodied, thick mouthfeel and a sour, malty, slightly bitter finish. More sourness and this would rock the world.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, thanks zvikar, smallish stable creamy head, black and quite opaque but with some dark brown hues, aroma of vanila, overipe oranges, cherries and cocnut, with a bourbonish hint, flavour of vanila, coconut, banana and hintsof dried fruits, spiciness and calvados, too strong alcoholic presence. Needs some more time to let everything blend together and become more mellow.
