ChrisOs Marvellous Pre GBBF Mega Tasting. Very dark brown beer, Short pale tan head. Nice nose of bourbon and wood. Smooth palate, a little soft. Mild fine carbonation. Lovely smooth bourbon with mild vanilla and some wood. Semi dry finish. A big unapologetic bourbon barrel beer but so smooth and drinkable.
