It starts of very rich and full, soft and mellow, then washes away to a bitterness which is lingering. Aroma is somewhat like ash or it’s very woody. Rather nice, a bit unexpected.

Dark balenced notes. Chocolate notes well balanced and aged well. Not too out there but still extremely enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Brothers Beer. Not much in the way of aroma, but the taste is more interesting. Biscuits, red wine, roasted nuts, little dried fruit. It’s nice. Maybe not got the complexity you might expect given the description.
