On tap at Christian Firtal. Hazy amber with a small white head. Malty aroma of bread and biscuit with grapes, grappa, dried apricot and simple alcohol. Very sweet fruity and malty flavour, with some oak and white wine. Raw and primitive, but actually working a lot better than this description sounds

Keg at BD Shepherd’s Bush tap takeover. It pours a deep amber color with a small off-white head. Aroma is sweet and boozy with notes of wood, malts, toasted bread, burnt sugar, white wine. Taste is again sweet and quite complex with notes of sweet malts, candy sugar, toffee, white wine, bubble gum and liqueur. Finish is alcoholic and quite sweet with light esters. Full bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, definitely too sweet to be truly enjoyable

Sweet nose, light barrel and hints of wine. Sweet malty barley wine, low on hops, just sweetness, oaky and hints of white wine on the finish. Could be cellared a while. A big kicker

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Taphouse. Low fluffy and quickly disappearing head. Clear dark amber body. Aroma sweeter than expected of malt grass honey and wine. Flavour though bittersweet malt grass wine wood and alcohol not as dominant as feared. Low carbonation. Long finish.
