2015 vintage - from bomber. Wonderful toffee flavor. Big and boozy; should be terrific in a year or two.

On tap last week at The Mayor Of Old Town. Lighter brown and clear appearance with a light brown head. Rich, malty aroma with notes of oak, vanilla, caramel, light coconut, candy sugar, leather, light molasses, toffee and light fruity esters. Similar flavor, adding a medium to heavy sweetness. Full body, with a smooth creamy feel. Rich and complex. Very niiiice.

Pours thick dark unclear amber with pretty much no head. Aroma is so beautiful like a toffee caramel bar and some sweet malts. The flavor brings big sweet raisins and snd rum and caramel with smooth spice like brown sugar as they did add it.
