AshtonMcCobb (6410) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 26, 2016
Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - cloudy amber brown. Decent head. Nose - chocolate and toffee. Biscuits. Taste - spiced biscuit and light toffee. A persistent apple note keeps going. Palate - close to medium bodied with a crunchy texture and a long dry crunchy finish. Overall - solid but probably better on draught. A bit gnarly.
