This beer, robust in taste and strength (9%) is the tops for flavour. It has a fruity and spicy bouquet, it has a stark taste, between a sharp bitterness and a caramelised flavour. It has no sugar, and this pure malt beer oscillates between various tendencies which all round off the bitterness. It has a peppery taste at the back of the mouth and a sharpness on the tongue. It is active in the mouth and lets each flavour express itself individually. It is very active in the glass which gives it a full, lasting, head. It has a long conclusion and puts emphasis on an ever present bitterness but less supported by the caramel. The final impression is one of gingerbread without sugar.

330 ml bottle, 7.5% on label. Murky amberish colour with a fine bubbled off white head. Yeasty aroma, with raisins, bread and some caramel. On the palate it is quite rich, but smooth, yeasty and some caramel/toffee notes with some banana. Decent stuff.
