Review and Tasting

Sampled on 15/08/2011

Appearance

Hazy mahogany brown with thick beige head.

Aroma

Yeasty brown bread dough nose with burnt sultana, fig and caramel aromas.

Taste

Wonderfully complex yeasty, malty, nutty palate with dried fruit and flavoursome slightly bitter hops.

Aftertaste

There's an almost beefy, stock cube note to the satisfying finish. A serious beer but one that is seriously easy to drink.
