3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sherry, oak, bourbony vanilla aroma. Almost clear deep gold with lasting bubbles on top. Boubon and vanilla are strong in the flavour together with a medicinal chocolate. Assertive bitterness that almost puts this beer off balance. Very low diacetyl. Light to medium body with a tiny bit of lasting bitterness. Slightly more carbonation than some other cask beers.
