cgarvieuk (13933) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 25, 2009
Bottle at home.. HUGE thanks to Ian for this one ... foamed on opening so quite hazy amber ... bubbly white head... sweet yeasty light spice nose ... rich spirit ... little toffee ... big resiny apple ... yeast ... pine ... this is a big body boozy bomb ... but the balance is quite nice ... real richness ... nice to drink like a nip.

Bottle courtesy of Alan. Thanks! Pours clear dark golden color with white head. Aroma is interesting. I canít put my finger on the gritty part. A twang and a hit of booze. Medium mouthfeel. Flavor is a sharp, pretty pungent note of booze and other flavors Iím just not that familiar with. Interesting.
