Tasted Friday 15/5 2009. 500ml bottle, 10% Alc/Vol.
A super duper beer. Very dark brown colour. Smells of molasses, dark roasted nuts, coffee bean and hops. Very rich and warming to drink. Really mouth filling and malty. There are some slightly charry stout-like flavours too. Exotic spice, toasted nuts and sweet toffee. The sweetness is pulled back nicely by the seamless hop infusion interwoven through the line and length of the beer. The finish is long, lingering and hoppy. Just fantastic……..and soul satisfying. The 500ml bottles are a perfect size for this kind of beer. Drink at around 8-10 degrees for best flavour results.
