Bottle conditioned.
Retired 2011; replaced with the 6.7% Triple with a different recipe. Bottles available are old stock.

"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."

Butterscotch, denatured alcohol, and honney hints in the crisp aroma. Butterscotch and ruccola flavour. Good bitterness in the aftertaste. Strange "bridge" though between the sweet taste and the bitter aftertaste.

500ml bottle - Deep amber body, slight off white head, soon goes. Nose is bananas, molasses, caramel and fruits. Taste is lovely and warming, more alcohol noticeable than in the little 6.7% bottles, and with a great velvety mouthfeel. Decent.

Brunrød farge med off white skum. Lukter Malt, karamell og plomme. Mild sødme i smak og noe bitter maltsødme i ettersmak.

Kuparinvärinen, mutta kirkas olut. Voimakas maku, mutta monipuolinen, kuiva maku. Jälkimaku pysyy pitkään miellyttävänä suussa.

aletcm (146) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - OCT 16, 2013
Cor marrom cor de Madeira. Pouca firmação de espuma que se esvai rapidamente. Pouco aroma, um pouco de malte, lúpulo. No sabor, baixo dulçor, com bom amargor, mas sem personalidade. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
