from crackedkettle.com - pours a hazy ruby-brown colour with a modest head retention; shows a robust oak character with woody and vanilla tones, notes od prunes and black currant marmalade; solid malt body and with a robust sweetness partially balanced by a fair bitterness, sticky and oily palate, moderate carbonation, some warming alcohol presence in a long hoppy and woody finish with more notes of red fruits - a beautiful one

The flavour is sweet with notes of oak, vanilla, caramel, dark fruit, light citrus, and it has a dry, slightly bitter finish. It’s vinous, soft and harmonic.
