Bottle, 330 ml, into a snifter, ABV 7.5%, bottled on 22/7/11
Deep red to light amber colour on the body, with a tall off white and froathy head. Very good retention nevertheless, leaving medium lacing on the glass. Body is clear with good activity in it.
Aroma is quite malty, with caramel, light roasted malts, nicely hopped with noble hops.
Very nice taste, sweet, with caramel and toffee, light hoppy, with the alcohol being quite obvious and enhancing the flavours.
Medium thick body, nice carbonation with a bite on the tongue. Mildly dry palate.
Overall a very nice take on the style, really enjoyed it.
