Aroma: Smelling of bread, red fruit, coffee and Desivon.
Appearance: A clear amber/copper beer. An off-white head with small lacing and good curtains.
Taste: Tasting of toffee, bread, orange chocolate and peel.

Nocturne (1805) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2012
On tap at Beer Temple, Amsterdam. Dark amber with an off-white head. A hoppy aroma suggests a red hop bomb might be ticking but it’s much maltier on the tongue, with caramel and red fruit escaping from a dense and almost meaty palate. Pretty tasty stuff.
