3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught@CBC 2015 (Yellow). Deep coppery brown colour with a small off-white head, that leaves some lace. Aroma is ripe fruits, plum, alcohol, some vanilla and a bit of toffee. Flavour is a nice balance of the same, with some slight fruity bitterness and a quite biting alcohol edge to it. Very nice.

12oz bottle to snifter. Dark mohogany. If you didn’t give it a second glance you might suppose it a stout. Decent head and a lasting ring. Sweet sweet sweet aroma. Some dark fruit. No booze which is amazing. Taste is heavenly molasses and toffee and burnt marshmallow with just a slight bitterness at the very end. Big sticky body. Moderate carbonation. Just wonderful.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cl bottle, courtesy of sebletitje (thanks Sebastian), pours with a clear amber body that supports a thin light tan ring of bubble. The aroma offers up boozy bourbon and sweet vanilla flowing into thin malts and molasses. The taste is smooth and slick with yummy molasses and a thin toffee sensation. It then picks up vanilla, modest smooth bourbon and booze to midway. This is a smooth sipper where the modest barrel treatment compliments rather than dominates the experience.
