Review and Tasting


Sampled on 13/08/2012

Appearance:

(sample bottle best before Mar-20) Hazy, light sandy golden with huge white head leaving heavy lacing.

Aroma:

Yeasty, spicy and bready with cracked black pepper alcohol, apple skin and pear.

Taste:

Full-bodied. Herbal, spicy, fruity, yeasty and grainy – all served with a bittersweetness and a balanced whack of alcohol.

Aftertaste:

Barley, yeast and spice with lingering sweet black pepper tingle.

Overall:

One of the world's great and noble beers. Huge in every respect, including a whopping 8.5% alc./vol., yet balanced and subtle.
