3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught @ Arendsnest as "Barclay Perkins Oatmeal Stout with Brett". Aroma has licorice, cocoa and hints of hay. Flavour has salty licorice, some cocoa and coffee tones. Feels a bit ashy. Leathery palate. Too salty but good still. The brett is hardly observable at first, but then it shows up.

Tap @ Arendnest as Barclay Perkins with Brett, small sample. Dark color, short frothy brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, lots of roast, slight coffee. Quite dry in taste, very roasted, slight bitter. Still nicely balanced, smooth velvety mouthfeel. Not a lot of Brett characteristics yet. Nice beer.
