Review and Tasting

Sampled on 17/01/2017

Appearance

(sample bottle best before Dec/26) Clear, deep mahogany brown amber with a thin quickly diminishing off-white head.

Aroma

Caramel, raisins, ripe plum and English breakfast black tea.

Taste

Full-bodied. Brown bread, caramel, raisin and stewed plum with grassy hops.

Aftertaste

Caramel, fudge and brown bread with light cinnamon and nutmeg spice.

Overall

Rich, huge and fruity but beautifully balanced. Great drinking as a new beer but also a beer that should be cellared and appreciated in years to come.
