15th January 2015
Opaque black beer, good fluffy tan head. Palate is airy and semi dry with modest fine carbonation. The dark malts are surprisingly thin and there is a strong bitterness, not roast malt derived, perhaps the wood. Unsweet dark fruits and mild but bitter whiskey. Light dry bitter finish. No shades of light here and I found it a little hard to drink.

[6084-20131129] Bottle. Mild shellfish but mainly red wine and bold chewy wood notes in the aroma. Black brown body with a medium-lasting foamy brown head. Smooth toasted wooden barrel flavour with a long aftertaste. Full body has a bit of a burning feel. Delicious. (8/4/8/4/16) 4.0
