Ugly brown. Kind of muddy. Toffee nose isnít very appetizing. Toffee body with lots of wood. Itís a somewhat lame strong beer with no discernable character other than the palo santo and I donít find that the underlying structure is either attractive on its own or in combination with the wood.

26th May 2012
Opaque black - brown beer, small tan head. Smooth palate with a little fine carbonation. Minerally freshness but the malt tastes a little tired, still smooth though. Slight barrel vanilla with a hint of fruit underneath. Tangy. Quite a minerally crisp finish. Decent beer but was expecting more from these titans!
