3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
355ml Bottle from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow (£4.40):
Another fairly enjoyable Flying Dog effort that was by no means the brewery’s best beer but a good one nonetheless, particularly because it was such a big, well flavoured beer that was very nice to sit and sip away at. Perhaps the alcohol content could have been better hidden but it didn’t take much away from the taste and it was well worth trying without truly exciting.

Dark brown, with a thick off-white head and lacing. Medium body. Lots of pumpkin on the nose. Spices dominate the taste at the beginning, particularly cinnamon and clove. Then; malt and brown bread crusts, like a good bruin. Boozy finish with lingering spices, which I don’t entirely like.
