Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Almost clear dark brown beer, little pale tan head. Palate is smooth and fresh with a mild fine carbonation. Bourbon biscuits in the malt. Light bourbon (the real stuff!), smooth with a touch of oaky vanilla. Whisper of cherry. Smooth finish. Lovely!
Bottle shared at Bruce’s in London during Jack’s farewell tasting. Thanks to Bruce. Pours deep brown with a thick, creamy yellow-beige head. Toasty bread on the nose, some burnt pine, hints of raisins. Medium to big sweet flavor, plenty of dried dark fruits, brown sugar, raisins, plums, mild chocolate, toasty toffee. Full bodied with fine, creamy carbonation. Sweet finish with sturdy offsetting bitter earth, burnt pine, well toasted bread, brown sugar, soft licorice, toffee. Really nice. Quite dynamic.

At Chriso pre GBBF Shindig 2013. Black beer dark brown edge. Lasting bubbly tan head. Chocolate sponge aroma quite juicy in mouth. It’s sticky. Ok brokensail (16432) - Dublin, California, USA - JUN 18, 2012
Dark brown in color with a thin tan head. An interesting nose. Lots of cocoa powder, vanilla, roasted malt, whiskey, and oak. A touch of coffee and a light chalkiness to it. The flavor has a good roasted malt, dark fruit, chocolate, and whiskey character, but the chalkiness is still there. Good, but not great. Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 25, 2013
