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.

Dublin ’03: Had this beer many times while I was in Ireland. Very smooth, not as complex as advertised, but hides the alcohol very nicely. Deep amber color with a nice hoppy & floral sweet aroma. Malty sweet flavor with some hints of fruit.

ciaranc (1102) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 10, 2013
330ml bottle. Deep copper, almost brown, frothy off white head. Caramel, nuts, cereal, toasted malt and burnt sugar in the nose, with a hint of perfumy hops. Flavour is sweet caramel offset with an understated English hop bitterness. Quite highly carbonated and big bodied. Finish is dusty malt, bittersweet. A nice example of the style.

BelgiskOlklub (1050) - Viby J, DENMARK - APR 17, 2012
Clear light brown body and a small dimishing rocky head. Aroma of fruit, alcohol, caramel, pine and spruce. The taste is medium sweet and medium to heavy bitter. Medium body, thin feel, oily feel, average carbonation, long finish, bitter. To heavy and not well integrated alcohol and a bitter long lasting finish.

Atheist_Peace (981) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAR 3, 2012
330ml bottle. Pours a clear dark amber with eggshell head that leaves a nice lace. Fairly rich, malty nose with fruit and bread. Rich on the palate as well with a little hop cutting through. Fairly weighty on the palate with a softly bitter finish.
