500 ml bottle.
Pours a dark amber colour with a thick, white head. Aroma of smooth brown sugar, slightly toasted malts and toffee. Very smooth flavour of toasted malts, brown sugar, candi sugar, toffee, some hops. Full bodied, very smooth mouthfeel and a long, warming, smooth and sweet finish. Overall a very smooth beer with loads of sweetness, but it doesn’t disturb here.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500mL bottle, pours a deep dark brown with an amber tinge and a medium beige head. Aroma is fairly sugary, with dark fruits, brown sugar and Belgium yeast. Flavour is very similar, with brown sugar, some dark fruits and Belgium yeast all equally characterizing the taste. Despite the name of the beer, the sugary qualities are not cloying, nor out of whack. Finishes on dark fruit and sugary brown sugar notes. Medium complexity with lots of depth. Very enjoyable.
