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.

BeerViking (2630) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2012
On gravity at the brewery open day. Now named Diamond Geezer. Sultanas and a hint of plum jam and grass on the nose. On the tongue it’s nutty and sweetish, with hints of pecan pie and a faint note of liquorice, the latter lasting into the bitter finish.

Cask at the Southampton Arms on 1st November 2011. Dark reddish copper with very little head/lacing. Aroma sweet with berries. Fruity liquid - sweetish berries, some pungency and floral hop. Finish bittersweet but I found bitterness somewhat lacking. Light bodied; mouthfeel smooth, light, watery.

Light to medium sweet flavor, big toasted malt character, some dark fruits, pumpernickel bread. Some mild, leafy bitterness. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Ripe and slightly tangy fruits in the finish, toast, light caramel. Not bad.
