A big bold, in your face, malty beer! A touch of sweetness to start, nuttiness to follow and hoppy-ness to finish. Give it a little time and let this beer develop and tantalise those taste buds with its powerful and delectable kick of Willamette hops. A complex copper coloured fusion of distinction. There’s a lot going on with this cheeky little beer, so take your time and sup it up.

jamestulloch (1793) - Edinburgh, - NOV 15, 2012
Aroma: Caramel, pine, leather and brown sugar.

Appearance: Murky mahogany body with a large off-white head that holds well. Good lacing.

Taste: Very hoppy but balanced by sweet malt flavours. Maple syrup, toffee and pine resin with a subtle plum note. Bitter finish.

Palate: Medium body with a sticky mouthfeel. Lively carbonation.

Overall: Impressive balance between sweet and bitter flavours.

SlackerMads (1891) - DENMARK - JAN 23, 2015
Cask. Light hazy hazelnut brown with a medium sized beige head. Smokey, fruit, berries, brown sugar, electrical fire. Seems to have some unintended yeast flavours, which take focus and makes it a bit of a strange experience. It is soft and filling and had it not been for the smoke/plastic, I Can imagine it would have been pretty good.
