sweet leaning - caramel raisins and toffee on the nose, with a nip of alcohol. Sweet and thick going down. Gotta be in the mood for this type of BW, but it’s nice.

Aroma is thick sweetness, raisins and maybe some honey with a tad of alcohol? The taste is red berries, light malts, ripe sweet plums theat leads into a nice subtle bitterness. This is a sipper, and I had a nice session enjoying this one. It feels like meeting an old relative, and you just sit back and enjoy a story being telled from their childhood.
