A dark beer with a well balanced sweetness, malt and chocolate tones. Challenger, Fuggles and Cascade hops produce a rich and spicy aroma with a balanced bitterness and full-bodied flavour.

Bottle, 11C. Darkish amber with a modest light beige head. Aroma of plums, raisins, cake, some chocolate and spices.Pretty full-bodied, lowish carbonation. Dark fruits, toffee and bread, firm bitterness. A bit salty at the end. Pretty good.

Biroholik (821) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - JUL 18, 2016
Tap @ White House, Luton
Ciemnobursztynowy kolor, pełna klarowność. Piana jasnobeżowa, umiarkowana. Piękne firanki na szkle. Spora oponka ponad piwem. W aromacie podobnie jak w smaku: karmel, toffi, ciasteczka, herbatniki, przypieczony chleb. Umiarkowane ciało, fajna słodowa baza i delikatnie chmielowy finisz. Ciekawe i wcale nie takie lekkie piwko.

The_Osprey (5932) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2016
Cask HP at The Crosse Keys as Inveralmond Lia Fail, 4.7%. Dark amber orange, translucent, still, foamy tan head endures and leaves thick lacing. Aroma is airy, bread, fig biscuits, hot cross buns. Body is fairly light, well conditioned, smooth. Taste is bread and resin, twiggy, smooth drinking, malt-led, a floral aftertaste which lasts for ages. Rock solid example of the style. Good.

CroccyLc (10) - Paisley, SCOTLAND - FEB 25, 2016
Aroma of malt, toffee and vanilla. Tastes initial bitterness followed by a nice roasted malt character, sweet caramel, hints of dark chocolate/coffee and then a nice sweet malt /bitter finish. Well balanced and very nice for the style. One of the best bitters I’ve tried.
