Taste: Smooth apple and light espresso notes lead followed by just a tang of crisp green apple skin acidity. Hints of wood smoke come in - like the last embers of a long-burnt smoke sauna — before fresh and vibrant red apples return. Gentle and warming calvados spirits round out the end, before leaving more of the chocolate apple notes promised in the aroma with a creamy, ice cream like finish.
Appearance: Charcoal black with a brown head.
Nose: Fairground caramelised toffee apple coated in milk chocolate on the nose, with burnt sugar and autumnal apple orchards as the beer warms.
