The colour is brown, the liquid clear. The finger thick head is off-white; it sinks down to a thick lid leaving no lacing.

The smell is lightly roasted with dried fruits – figs, apricots, some strawberries and dried bananas. Hints of alcohol, brandy/bourbon and a touch of raisins. It is dry, smooth and a little lighter than expected.

The taste is semi-sweet with passing mint-like bitterness. Dried fruits and brown sugar/caramel. Floral notes and a touch of chocolate in the background. Medium body. Growing sweetness in the aftertaste as well as warming alcohol, figs and tree sap. The finish is caramel sweet with some oak and bitterness.

The carbonation is medium strong; the mid-sized bubbles sharp and short-lived. The liquid is a bit sticky.

The barrel ageing has probably taken away too much of the body, making this beer a bit thin.
