Bottle from Cotteridge wines. A catch up rate. Aroma is nice earthy roast, damp campfire, slight smokey ash, Some earthy coco on the nose as well..

Flavour is composed of smooth nutty roast, campfire, praline, and a bittle roast bitterness in the finish. Smoke character is nicely integrated with the base beer. A little soapy note on the flavour. Palate is medium full, smoth with highish carbonation.
