3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Apex on the last day of Stout Fest. Dark clear amber with a creamy head. Sweet dry tropical fruitiness, vanilla, bourbon, some orange rind, full body and moderate carbonation, bitter on the finish but everything is quite strong in terms of flavours and just doesn’t seem to blend well together.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Apex, pours a murky dark orangey maroon with a medium beige / tan head. Aroma brings out moderate bourbon notes, vanilla and dark fruits. Flavour brings out loads of vanilla notes, bourbon, followed by dark fruit and caramel. Extremely well-balanced, and definitely the best of the trio. Dangerously drinkable.
