COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brew N°1, Limited edition of 1755 bottles

The first beer made in our new oak aged gamma has been aged on Belgian Gin barrels. The aroma searches a balance between caramel, toasted bread and some fruity aspects such as apricot and plum. Also there is some form of spices, tasted as pepper and safran. The taste itself is mainly exotic fruit flavours, cassis and caramel. We end with a pure beer taste with a royal dose of heating alcohol.

Leighton (10512) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2012
Bottle at Chriso’s 2012 Pre-GBBF Shindig, London. Pours hazy gold with a fine white head. Hugely sugary nose, heavy on the doughy malts, with other notes of ripe fruits, apricots and lemon. Hugely sweet flavor (go figure!) with big sweet dough, alcohol, yeast, gin. Full bodied with fine, tingly carbonation. Hot finish, some sting, with lots of sugary malts, alcohol-soaked white bread. Lasting heat. I don’t think my rating makes this beer sound very good, but it was actually pretty decent.
