Theydon_Bois (10386) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2015
Bottle split at Chez Bruce, thanks to Kenneth King of Essex, 28/11/14. Pitch black with a tan swirl. Nose is rich roast, spice, mineral notes, earthy hop presence, chocolate, booze, dark toffee fudge, calvados evident. Taste comprises spice, warming booze, dark fruit rinds, molasses, dark chocolate, toasted brown sugar. Full bodied, fine carbonation, sweet licks in the closure. Decent Impy, the 15% is well masked but no game changer.
