Pours too cold off tap with little in the way of head. Deep, dark pint with notes of ruby-russet. Diacetyl and typically buttery oakiness along with raisins, dates and allspice aroma, port and brandy along with it. Smells like a good, full-on dessert pint. The flavours are the same with the oak very much to the fore and those lovely medicinal flavours coming through strongly although the finish is running a little short. Perhaps will develop well with a bit of age. I’ll have to look out for a bottle and put it in the cellar.
