4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hand bottle at Pat’s Birthday Tasting, London, thanks to Ian. Pours clear garnet with a white foam head. Rich malts aroma, some toffee. Very sweet flavor with cake-like bread, caramel, sugar syrup. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Sticky and lightly warming on the finish, with toasty sugars, more caramel, some boozy fruits. Very, very good. It’s a very sweet beer, but for the style that’s how it goes. Wonderful depth here.
