maneliquor (3057) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 3, 2013
Bottle from Craft Beer Co Islington. Pours dark chrestnut brown with a small, firm khaki head. Solid lacing left about. Nose shows heavy raisin and dark fruits, really reminds me of a Christmas cake pudding. Heavy, dark fruits, light wood and charred malts. Very creamy like custard. Raisins are huge. Christmas cake notes akin to rum n raisin. Lightly burnt malts and toffee. Great balance for quite a big beer. Alcohol is warming which I really enjoy but hidden very well. Very good stuff. Spot on when it comes to my palate
