A big thank you to Gothgargoyle for this! Holdbar til 22/03/20

Appearance. Pours a murky orange-brown with a thin khaki head that fades to a lasting collar.

Smell. Nice caramel and oak barrel with a little old barrel funk. There's a little citrus and orchard frutiness going on as well. Nice.

Taste. Wow. Citrus rinds and caramel, coconut and toasted oak, some sharp alcohol, oily bitter hops that last on the tongue. Interesting with big flavours going on.

Mouthfeel. Fairly full bodied, low carbonation.

Overall. Sweet, boozy, hoppy, tons of barrel. It's an assault on the palate but nothing really outputting about it. Always fun to try something different.
