27th May 2015: on tap at Pizza Port, Carlsbad. Dark old gold body, off white topping. Caramelised fruit nose with a taste not unsimilar in nature, mild nutty trace within the flavour with the raisins also showing a little, Different and interesting, liked the alcohol level too, suited the beer and did effect the overall feel and drinkability.
