Cask; Regular (formerly Occasional). A replacement for Abbeydale Best Bitter.
Russet brown beer made with Amarillo hops. It has aromas of malt loaf, marmalade and apricots with some burnt toast coming through from the dark malt. The flavours are of coffee, toffee and liquorice with underlying spices, especially cloves. There is bitterness throughout, growing during the long finish. Abbeydale’s refreshing take on a classic English bitter.
The brewers who invented the name had visions of the ruined abbey on a sea of fire or something suitably brimstoney. But the artist comes up with a horned devil in a pentacle.
