2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask conditioned at Egham Beer Fest #13. Dark brown with no head. This is heavily spiced, maybe over spiced, loads of cinnamon, Chinese type dessert spices and bitter orange. I understand the experiment but for me it missed a little.
