3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml Bottle: best before 20 Dec 2012, poured @ home into a UK pint sleeve on 15 Nov 2012. The beer was obtained from my local B&M Bargains Store.
Nice deep, dark ruby red colour with a full uneven covering of tan foam on top.
Brown sugar type malty molasses in the nose and taste: this is a malts first and foremost brew. Prunes, plums and mixed nuts vie for your attention in the flavours as the malts and hops go to work with each other.
The body is moving towards rich and thick: the beer reminded me of those old winter warmers because it has that sort of Christmassy fireside taste and palate.
Cheap to buy: well worth the cost and I’ll be getting some more in for December.
