For my 9th beer of Xmas my true love sent to me…
You know the format by now – click here for yesterday’s recap
Marks & Spencer / Meantime ‘Bourbon Barrel Aged Greenwich Ale’ (6% ABV / 750ml)
Unfortunately, that where it all seemed to end. None of the flavours followed through, there a slight roasted maltiness going on in the background and a hint of a bitter finish but very little else. As it warmed in the glass a little, there were some woody aromas and a more roasted after taste, but still nothing exciting. Very disappointed in this – not a lot else to say really.
My mate James liked this one though and said that it complimented the chilli and smokey cheeses that he was enjoying.
