On cask at Vintage - Pours dark cola with a thin brown head. Tons of meaty smoke with fruity candy on the nose. Mingles with menthol and lemongrass to form a scent reminiscent of household cleaner. Tastes roughly the same, but with more cleaner, less smoke, and amped-up sweetness. I appreciate that they’re trying new things--sounds like this was a gruit recipe--but this one just didn’t work. Left a good deal of this in my glass.
