Pint pulled at The Raiway in Putney (London), a dark ruby brown withsa filmy head. A very strong malty aroma and a slight fruitiness. The malt is very strong again in the flavour with something sweetish in the background (kind of like cherries). Sits is the mouth beautifully and gives me a warming feeling (a little like brandy).

For the sake of the social interaction just numeral ratings and/or some highlighted attributes. Quite dull strong ale from a decent brewery. Nothing worth of highlighting, but still good.
