Cask, Pigs Ear 2017. Quite dark almost black colour. Strong Brett whiff. Good, not overpowering funk set against strong dark malts, chocolate, hint treacle, bit of roast actually becomes quite luscious. Enjoyed this.

Barrel aged with Brett for 4 months, this cask was then stored for a year Nose is coffee, old red wine, touch of leather. Palate starts dry, faintly tart-winey and funky, hints of cocoa, then rounds out with a little chocolate and earthy malt. Dry and lightly tart finish.
