4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Nose is rich coco, vanilla, faint hint of smoke, cream. Taste is gently smokey, lots of cream, very soft coco, vanilla, and a smokey faintly herbal, licorice, light hop and smoke finish. Further sips give a boiled lemon sweet effect, in the mid palate, perhaps lemon grass tea, which I guess is the wood?
Rich and delicious and beautifully balanced.

Bottle. Pours jet black with thin brown head and medium carbonation. Full aroma of wood smoke, lemon, chocolate.
