4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, enjoyed almost 4 years after bottling. Pours clear golden, with a short lived creamy head. Aroma is sweet roasted malts with grain, toffee and heather as well as kandi, wood, dried fruits and massive herbal cognac notes. Medium body, with soft carbonation. Flavour is sweet grainy malts with bread, chocolate, toffee, honey and banoffee pie, as well as dried fruits and some hot and very fitting cognac and vanilla notes. Dark malty chocolate in the finish. Very smooth and balanced, especially considering the ABV. Splendid brew.
