What the brewers say

“Oak vanillins, deep, dark cherry, chocolate tones enhance the caramel, toffee, treacle aroma and flavor.”

What our panel thought

“Super-fruity aroma accents the strong caramel malt. The flavor stirs in dark caramel, toffee, a dash of sherry, some slightly numbing alcohol, a ghost of earthy hops.”

What our editors thought

“Light floral notes highlight the caramel-centric aroma, with an almost cake frosting–like vanilla edge. Round and less defined in the sip, as chocolate and burnt caramel notes swirl into a loose, dry finish.”
