COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our secret weapon. A fulsome, winsome strong ale. A deep copper tinged brew for the true aficionado, longer fermentation and thrice hopping bring about a complex soft bitterness allied to a malt induced sweetness with the characteristic oily Fuggles hop perfume. Not just for students. Once "stuffed" savour the flavour of a glass as a digestif... True "Aroma-therapy".

Grain: Pale Malt, Roast Barley, Black Malt, Flaked Barley.
Hops: Galena, Nugget, East Kent Goldings.

KM (332) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 21, 2007
Tap. Brown colour. Nice, creamy beige head. First it smells like bakery, then a bit sour milk and at the end sourish and fruity. Strange ... Very nice fruity flavour and ends in a strong bitter finish. (Porterhouse, Dublin, 16.03.07)
