The Last Tasting at Bruce’s palatial pad. Opaque dark black - brown beer with a good darkish tan head. Palate is smooth and light and a little airy. Good creamy dark malt with a nice touch of smooth dark chocolate. Melloe red wine tang and fruits. A light touch of coconut (nowhere near as much as the JD BA). Nice red berries on the finish. The chilli dominates more here and slightly outmuscles the red wine. Otherwise very good indeed.
