3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask @ Cafe Royal. Bright amber-orange. Tight lasting head. Aroma is a little gamey. Tastes much better, with toffee, caramel, toasted malts, and a lingering herbal finish. Even some clove and cinnamon on the palate. Nutty too. It seems like it would be sweet because of the malt character, but it’s actually more spicy. Finishes with a smack of toast and spice.
