Clear golden with a off-white head. The nose have a lot of sweet caramel and butterscotch, but there are also some dried fruit, orange and mixed undefined hops. The rich mouth goes along the same line, just more of it. A nice medium bitter ending. Altogether a very good strong ale at a comfortable price. Iíll have more of this one alright...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma-honey,coffee,slightly sweet maybe nuts
Appearance-Copper, thin off white head
Taste-sweet but also just a little bit bitter. Tates strong in the same sort of way a sweet sherry would (what I mean is like a sweet drink bit with a little kick to it.
Overall- I like this, could not drink a lot of it and for me one 500ml bottle would be my only beer for the night.
