onceblind (6916) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 12, 2016
Hazy deep nutty amber/brown with a medium foamy ivory head. Lovely dates and cherry on the nose with a classic English toffee undertone. Slightly boozy and bold flavor with a bright leafy hop tone throughout, lots of date and cherry and also a touch of fig, with a nice English strong ale malt undertone with some toffe and booze heat. Nuanced and quite British.
