"A beer conceived by Head Brewer Jeremy Moss, to celebrate the return of Brakspear brewing to Oxfordshire. This is a triple fermented, triple hopped strong beer, packaged in individually numbered bottles.

With its high alcohol content and bottle conditioning, this is a beer that will go on to develop further complexity as it matures in its bottle."

I love this beer - but not it’s 6.7% contemporary! The 7.2% version is everything I want from a dark, malty ale - with fruity notes. Get rid of the 6.7% version - it’s crap, in comparison..

gegwilson (1269) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2014
Bottle from B&M. Rich copper colour with a quickly fading cream frothy head. Plenty of flavour to this - Spicy with apple, cinamon, pear drop, liquorice. Feels quite boozy, but in a way that is warming and enjoyable and it remains quite quaffable. A decent beer.
