Poured a dark mahogany with zero life. The flavour was flat, lifeless, a little like syrup but not in a nice way. Not nice to drink at all.

Bottle thanks to Leighton. It pours deep brown with a small beige head. The nose is earthy, wood, caramel and supermalt. The taste is dry, woody, caramel, earth, leather with a dry finish. Light body and fine carbonation. Punchier than the John Hop for sure. As 1% old ales go this is a belter.
