COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned. 330ml.
Ingredients: Pale malt, Black Crystal malt, Oats, Target hops.
Switched to filtered in 330ml bottles in 2011, then back to bottle conditioned in 2011.
Its high alcohol content along with the molasses and rum flavours create a beautiful contrast with blue cheeses or steak and kidney pie; and complement Dundee cakes or Cadbury’s fruit and nut.

zimbo (570) - SCOTLAND - DEC 30, 2012
Appears clear dark brownish orangy to the eye. Pretty thin head but leaves some lace. Dark musty sharpish bitterness that really hits the end palate which is then strangely followed by some fruit. A real vinous quality there with tartness. Did start spritzy though and lightish for the acohol leaving a sort of cloying quality on the tongue. BIt of a cut and shut to me.

Flaske hos Ole Anders des-12: god malt/humlearoma med litt appelsin. Deilig sødme med preg av rom, molasse, uten å bli klissete. God karbonering og munnfylde: Laang ettersmak. Stemningen er i ferd med stige betraktelig.
