3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle (Vintage 2010) at The Others Tasting, London - another good one from Bruce. Pours lightly foggy amber with a frothy, tan head. Dry, ripe fruits on the nose, light earth. Medium to big sweet flavor with lightly toasted wood, bitter earth, toasty bread and rindy citrus. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly warming finish with more earthy bitterness, ripe semi-dark fruits, alcohol, wood, some dried toffee. Rich and not overly sweet. Nice.

On tap at fountainhead. Nice sweet creamy aroma. Take a small sip and its robust and sweet but not overpowering. Take a big sip and it’s intensely smoky. Good and quite complex.

THE Others tasting. 2010 Bottle. Cheers to the ever resourceful Bruce for this one. Hazy amber beer with a big pale tan - cream head. Palate is dry and a little soft. Mild lactose cream and caramel. Spicy bourbon and a trace of dry wood. Dried fruits lurk underneath. Semi dry finish. Usual Stone quality but even after 3 years this still has bourbon bite.
