By Jeff Evans

85
Nose
Rich and smooth, with mellow, creamy oak and a fortified wine character.
Palate
Good, light mouthfeel overlaid with creamy, winey, dried fruit notes, some bursts of bitter orange and an oaky dryness. On the sweet side, with alcohol vapours making it gently warming.
Finish
Dry, thick, oaky and bitter, with a tangy accent.
Comment
The first of three limited collection beers, this orange-amber beer offers a great mix of flavours, with oak playing its part but not totally dominant.

By Glenn Payne

88
Nose
Distinctly vinous with background of slightly aged berries.
Palate
Nutty, sherry notes that lead to sweet liquorice.
Finish
Surprisingly well balanced. Beautifully crafted finish.
Comment
Copper coloured. A potential aperitif.
