Hopmaestro (362) - Örebro, SWEDEN - APR 2, 2015
Aroma is thick sweetness, raisins and maybe some honey with a tad of alcohol? The taste is red berries, light malts, ripe sweet plums theat leads into a nice subtle bitterness. This is a sipper, and I had a nice session enjoying this one. It feels like meeting an old relative, and you just sit back and enjoy a story being telled from their childhood.

johndoughty (4170) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2014
