First hit of aroma is of a warm and very alcoholic brandy pudding, or some-such. That subsides a bit and its more Xmas cakey, a slightly spicy (nutmeg and black pepper?) Xmas cake sweating in a tupperware box on the back seat of the Holden in the hot NZ Xmas. A faint hint of cardamom, just for a second. Taste is more well balanced than the aroma suggests. The alcohol is a warmth in the finish preceded by a spicy medium bitterness. a light sourness runs backwards on the outskirts of your tongue which seems to help spread the initially dense flavour into a workable sheen. Definite black pepper at the finish. Im not sure if this is an IPA? But it is a nice beer, interesting and stimulating and warming.

Slick, oily and pungent. Deep brown in colour, thick head lifting resinous hop aroma high. Nicely malted, feels full in the mouth, allowing the oily hop resins to float and linger into the aftertaste. Hops are front and centre here; its a bit of a one trick pony, but it does that trick well.
