Bottle thanks to Dirty D at the 2016 Cotteridge Convention. It pours deep reddish mahogany brown with a decent beige head. The nose is rich and malt-driven, wood, vanilla, hot cross bun, vinous and dried berry. The taste is rich, vinous, dark fruits, fruit compote, oak, fruit cake, Victoria sponge, jammy strawberry and some bitterness with a dry, woody finish. Full body, fine carbonation and slick mouth-feel. Great depth of flavour and complexity, yet remains very drinkable. Tasty.
