Opaque black - brown beer, big pale tan head. Light dry palate. Dry and mellow dark malt.Touches of cream, toffee and roast. Just a very light trace of red wine. Bubblegum ester streak seems out of place. Finishes dry. A but dry and could have done with a stronger barrel presence.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
333 c&c from Malt & Vine. How not to love beer from Blenheim! Pours very dark brown/black with a creamy tan head. The aroma is unexpected. It’s vinous. Inhaling deeply I get chocolate. Trying hard I get a bit of coffee. Full + bodied. Almost champagne carb. Flavor is vinous, oaky, chocolate, even smooth burnt malt. :) Develops a bit of darkish grape towards the finish. I do not know how to break down the flavor profile. It’s just amazing. Finish is something like a mix of astringent oak and burnt malt. Great ale.
