2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask @ Akkurat. Feels a bit schizo (the opposite of clean) with its quaffable sweetness, heavy bready malty notes and the rather strange herbal bitterness in the end.

Bottle. Copper-brown pour with foamy uneven off-white head that sustains and laces nicely. Nose offers sweet fruity malts with notes of figs, treacle, dried dark fruits and nutty hints.
