COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
Smooth, dark & dangerous, this ale is designed to warm the cockles of your heart whilst sitting round the ingle after a long, cold winters day outdoors. Although dark and robust, the aftertones of liquorice & blackcurrent make this an ale of complex character, not to be missed.
