ChrisOs Marvellous Pre GBBF Mega Tasting. Very dark brown beer, Short pale tan head. Nice nose of bourbon and wood. Smooth palate, a little soft. Mild fine carbonation. Lovely smooth bourbon with mild vanilla and some wood. Semi dry finish. A big unapologetic bourbon barrel beer but so smooth and drinkable.
Bottle at Chriso’s 2012 Pre-GBBF Shindig, London. Awesome stuff. Big character, lots of raisins, alcohol-soaked dark fruits, brownies, dark sugars, earth. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Moderate blackcurrant tang, some dry chocolate. Excellent. Some woody dryness and mild spice, too. One of the top beers of the tasting. rlgk (18852) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 5, 2014
