ThirstBourne Tasting Notes
This black beer poured with a stable light brown head. There is a complex woody and dark fruit aroma. There is a noticeable strength to this full bodied stout with caramel and sultana flavours that give way to the whiskey and wood aftertaste. A very indulgent and smooth imperial stout.
