Trogdor (196) - Cairns, - APR 29, 2005
deep golden with a nice white, creamy head, low carbonation. caramel, toffee and spicy alcohol dominate the aroma. tastes like tremens with a more pronounced toffee flavour. mouthfeel has that highly carbonated fizzy sensation on the tongue, soft at the back of the mouth with the ever-present alcohol spiciness that always accompanies a beer of this strength. overall this is a very enjoyable beer that reveals more secrets as it warms in the palm of your hand, like a tremens that has been boiled longer to get a nice caramelised toffee flavour from the malt.
