(missed vintage) bottle at "Tony's Taphouse"
Sinister looking brew - dark, thick, holds a rim off brown head.
Intense from the get go - roast malts, molasses, vanilla, dried fruits, leather, booze.
Not as thick as expected - sort of get that with a braggot though - warming, slick texture, long finish.
Like a carnival on the palate - roast coffee, bitter chocolate, rich honeyed notes, burnt sugars, raisons & porty rancio notes, finishes dry.
Just tremendous - best braggot I've tried! Stuu666 (15248) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 12, 2017

Black color, dark brown head. Bourbon, alcohol, raisin taste. Mellow, smooth mouthfeel, no bitterness. Very nice! Some sweet aftertaste. Bourbon, vanilla scent.
330ml bottle. Black with small dark brown head. Strange and complex aroma. Lots of bourbon, soy sauce, meaty umami flavours, blackberry, leather. Taste is sweet, rich, sticky, more soy sauce, molasses. Doesn’t feel close to 15% but not one I’d want to drink every night. Interesting.
