Review and Tasting

Sampled before 1st May 2011

Appearance

Clear, dark chestnut amber with full retentive head, but light lacing.

Aroma

Boozy Christmas cake with loads of plump raisins and sultanas, burnt sugar and faint cinnamon and hop spice.

Taste

Monster palate, but remarkably approachable of such an alcoholic beast. Alcohol bite, fruit, honey/brown sugar/toffee sweetness and bitterness all in perfect balance.

Aftertaste

Burnt sugar and baked/burnt sultana finish with charcoal toast crust bitterness.
