harrisoni (14355) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2013
Bottle bought at the brewery and drunk at home. Black beer with thin beige head. Choc aroma with some spirit like element. Choc sponge cake aroma, then more choc in mouth with a definite but subdued whisky edge. The Whisky is rather pleasant. It’s rather good. Pleasant. The whisky is definitely there. Gives a bit more structure. Perhaps a touch more malt would give it fullness. It’s kinda fun. But just a touch thin to support all this flavour. Good chocolate though.

Draught @ CBC2013. Pours pitch black with a small dark mocha head that quickly dissipates without leaving much trace on the glass. Smell is malty with roasted malts, pumpernickel bread, caraway, peat, charred wood, vanilla fudge, burnt cereal, caramel, bitter chocolate and dark roast coffee. Taste is slightly sweet, bitter and malty with roasted malts, dark roast coffee, pumpernickel bread, bitter chocolate, burnt cereal, charred wood, peat, vanilla fudge, single malt whisky, caramel and liquorice fudge. Mouthfeel is round, slightly dry, tiny astringent and medium bodied. Finish is bitter and malty with roasted malts, dark roast coffee, vanilla fudge, burnt caramel, charred wood and hints of single malt whisky. Tasty...
