Nose
Smoky and woody, with toffee and chocolate.
Palate
On the sweet side, with more toffee and chocolate, plus a finely-judged smoky accent from the whisky casks.
Finish
After a smooth swallow, bitterness gradually builds, with chocolate and toffee lingering. Drying and just a bit chalky, with a hint of whisky persisting.
Comment
A New Zealand take on a ‘dark English ale', blended with beer aged in whisky oak for three months. Nicely done, with the wood influences pleasant and subtle.

Nose
Slightly phenolic nose.
Palate
Hints of smokiness lead to vanilla and combine with hop bitterness.
Finish
Smooth with a smoky background.
Comment
Pitch black that has expected whisky attributes but would benefit from a cleaner palate and more body.
