Review and Tasting
Sampled on 17/01/2017
(sample bottle best before Dec/26) Clear, deep mahogany brown amber with a thin quickly diminishing off-white head.
Caramel, raisins, ripe plum and English breakfast black tea.
Full-bodied. Brown bread, caramel, raisin and stewed plum with grassy hops.
Caramel, fudge and brown bread with light cinnamon and nutmeg spice.
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.
Bottle Size: 700 ml
Closure: Crown cap
