DanielBrown (4054) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2015
Bottle from Wine Lord, Birmingham. This shop is a bit overpriced. Enjoyed the beer though. Really good. Great balance, great sticky malt sweetness. Great tacky tongue touching insistence. Deserves to be higher rated. So smooth.
