Cask, Peterborough Beer Festival 2014. Very dark brown with a bubbly beige head. Aromas are toffee and Weetabix with vanilla and creamy oak. Herbal and peppery with a good whack of booze. Some vinous, plummy notes with raisins and smoke. Flavours are thick molasses with dark chocolate and liquorice. Spicy, warming alcohol with raisins and burnt toffee. Woody with bonfire character and a very dry mouthfilling finish. Unrefined and dangerous. Jow (3979) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 20, 2014
