    A dark ale brewed with Chocolate and Crystal malts, with Styrian, Goldings and Fuggles hops. Fuggles are used early in the boil with Styrian late hopped. The British cask version of this beer is 4.5% while export bottles sent to the USA are a mere 3.5% so obviously affecting flavour and style. Read more

    Review and Tasting

    Sampled on 15/02/2013

    Appearance

    (best before 31-Dec-13) Clear, dark amber with burnished copper/bronze highlights. Thin but long lasting off-white head.

    Aroma

    Fudge, overripe pear, biscuit and citrus zest with faint earthy chocolate.

    Taste

    Dry, piney hops and stewed fruit with caramel and slight liquorice. The hops are dominant but not overpoweringly so.

    Aftertaste

    Dry finish with lingering pine hops.
