jgb9348 (5677) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Rich deep dark brown coloured body with a little ruby and copper tint and a nice, two centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of bright english hops, a ton of pit fruits, some yeast and basement must and a lot of deep nuts and caramelised sugars. Full-bodied; Strong pit fruit flavours with a lot of nuts and earth, some mellow yeast and a touch of cherries with a light hop note at the very end. Aftertaste shows a good blend of malt and hops with a lot of earth and nuts, some pit fruits and a touch of deep bitterness. Overall, a nice strong ale with some nutty and earthy flavours and a good deal of bitterness. I sampled this pint on draught at Ironhorse Tap Room in Washington, DC on 23-December-2013.
