Review and Tasting

Sampled on 27/03/2012

Appearance

Very slight haze, coppery amber with white head which quickly disappears.

Aroma

Pungent clove, herbal, biscuity nose with black pepper, toffee and citrus.

Taste

Full-bodied herbal, malty palate with tongue tingling black pepper bite, coriander and stewed pear. High alcohol strength is masked by subtle honey sweetness and powerful botanicals.

Aftertaste

Lingering maltyness and cracked black pepper.
