harrisoni (13704) - 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.
