COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
More often than not, most high alcoholic beers possess astringent spirity flavours, detracting from the other aspects of the beer. The reverse is true for the Raging Bull. At 7.1% alc./vol., the Bull begins with the intense malty flavours ranging from the crystal flavour and all its diversity to the coffee flavours of the roasted barley. A slight bitterness is apparent from the Pride of Ringwood hops but the main essence remains with the intense warming body structure. The Bull finishes with a resounding sweetness which, like chocolate, begs for another mouthful.

Bottled. Dark mahogany, rich firm head. Nutmeg aroma. Elegant, woody and solidly malty, There’s a rich cookie malt flavour and lots of milky chocolate. The hop late is low, and does not distract from the richness of the malt flavours. Complex, and really, really good!

maeib (8640) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2005
Bottled at the Chris_O Beer, Cheese and Curry powwow. A black beer with no head. The aroma is sweet with caramel and chocolate together with good alcohol notes. The taste is more of the same. Sugary sweet Doppelbock qualitles rather than a porter for my liking.
