Tasting Notes

"Starts on sweet and malty notes with a touch of charred oak. There are cereal husks, honey and sweet orange juice as well. The palate is pretty creamy, even at this low abv. A subtle, chocolate-y arrival, with hints of raisins and a mild spiciness. A bitterness lingers for a little while, with a sweet touch of slightly burnt caramel."
