3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask gravity at Nottingham BF 2007. Very dark brown, thin tan head. Smells of putty. Intense coffee malt, roasty and toasty. Not sure where the honey is, but definitely intense. Putty and coffee aroma. Good aftertaste of smooth mocha coffee. Putty runs through it. Not sure it entirely works. More honeycomb than honey, a nod towards a Crunchie but covered in thick intense coffee flavoured dark choc. Putty fades a little as it goes down. Definitely distinct.
