Nose
Nutty – specifically pecans, almonds, hazelnuts, Crunchy Nut Cornflakes and All Bran. Redcurrants, raspberries and pencil shavings also muddle along in there.
Palate
The ABV carries some punchy, delicious flavours along in a lovely chewy texture. Hazelnut praline Belgian chocolate seashells mix with green hops. Sounds strange, but is incredibly beguiling.
Finish
That praline keeps on going. Guyliaaaaaaaaaaan…
Comment
Big and beautiful.

Nose
Attractive. Straw and barley. Chardonnay. Then melon and pineapple. Dried hops, chaff-like. Milk chocolate. Tangerines. Lovely mustiness.
Palate
Brash vanilla sweetness balanced with tart fruits and savoury spice. Blackberries, raspberry jam, malted milk biscuits, sweet chilli sauce, blood oranges, grapefruit juice and bitter chocolate.
Finish
Peppery. Tart fruit and sweet chilli heat, fading to digestive biscuits.
Comment
Audacious blending – succulent too. I'd drink this on tap.
