4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught from gravity cask at GD tap room. Pours oily dark brown colour with a frothy lighter film around the edges. Aroma dominated by vanilla but hints of candied fruit and anise in the background. Slippery mouthfeel. Big vanilla in the flavour too but also some whiskey and chocolate with a nice touch of alcohol in the finish. Got lucky to try this offering.
