harrisoni (15792) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2011
Bottle at Kernel Brewery. Thanks to the peter. Too much wood on aroma. Too much heat. Nice choc. Very dry. Tio much wood way too biozy hot finish. Just too thin. Too much barrel ageing

Medium sweet flavor, woody, some dark sugars, bit of dark cocoa, hard alcohol, light earthy bitterness. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation.
