On cask at Tonic in Dunedin.

A: Cloudy opaque sienna brown. cm thick khaki head that's strangely airy for a cask serving.
S: Big roasted grains and a hint of chocolate. Some toffee, hazelnut notes as well.
T: Slightly sweet chocolate and sour rye at first. Big roasted malt through the middle. Slightly bitter finish but with a sweet linger of toffee on the tounge.
M: Grainy. Creamy. Medium-bodied.
D: Being one of those stranger people who doesn't dig chocolate in any form I was worried about this one going in. Happily its about the rye not the chocolate. Rather simple but rather good.
