Sampled before 1st May 2011
Clear, dark chestnut amber with full retentive head, but light lacing.
Boozy Christmas cake with loads of plump raisins and sultanas, burnt sugar and faint cinnamon and hop spice.
Monster palate, but remarkably approachable of such an alcoholic beast. Alcohol bite, fruit, honey/brown sugar/toffee sweetness and bitterness all in perfect balance.
Burnt sugar and baked/burnt sultana finish with charcoal toast crust bitterness.
