Bottle at Craigs. A dark brown beer with a lacy light tan head. Aroma of leather, coffee and caramel. Flavours of coffee, passion fruit, dark malts and barley. Foamy mouth-feel with a fair CO2 prickle from the moderate carbonation.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Cask at The Bree Louise, London. Dark gold pour with a thick, foamy eggshell head. Beautiful nose, piney hops and grapefruit come piercing through. Damn, this is really, really good. Flavor holds toasty malts, honey, caramel, huge bitterness of pine, grapefruit, tangerine and earth. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sticky, dank hop finish, lingering pine, earth, and lighter citrus. Some faint sugar maltiness helps balance things out. Wow. Excellent beer.
