spacecube (806) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2013
Hazy dark brown with a small head, in the nose plenty of caramel malts, brown sugar, a bit of orange, hints of coca cola. Some raisins and alcohol. Almost overwhelmingly sweet, but a mild bitterness overrides the sweetness at the end. Enjoyed it more as it went down.
