Cloin's 20K @ T42. Thanks to Leighton. Opaque dark brown beer, small pale tan head. Palate is airy, semi dry and has decent fine carbonation. Dry and thin dark malts, a little dark chocolate. Mild spice some of it booze generated. Light caramel. Dry and tangy dark fruits. Ripe red wine. Light dry and mildly spicy finish. Nice enough but was hoping for more.

Nice presentation. Pours muggy brown, small lasting head. Nice sugar cherry aroma. Full body, low carb. Boozy berries and woody funk on tasting, with some slightly undesirable Brett flavours. Fairly sweet, long finish. Probs worth hanging on to so see how it develops mR_fr0g (14242) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2017
