3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
750mL skittle Champagne bottle
Ruby body, bit of haze, supports a sizeable fluffy white head.
Subdued aroma. Caramel, toasty/biscuity malts, hint of woody and earthy spices, some faint red fruit esters.
Carbonation is quite low, medium bodied.
Nice sweet malts on the body, good bit of caramel, biscuit and toasted nuts. Fruity esters with some nice cherry and raspberry undertones. Low bitterness on finish, hint of spice lingers.
Not a style i’ve come across much of, so it’s hard to know how to compare it. Certainly enjoy the malt character and sublties about the overall character of the beer. Spose a bit more carbonation would be nice to give it some texture, but it’s not bad overall.

Bottle thanks to Dlau. Pours a dark brown with smallish tan coloured head. Aromas of sweet malt, some stone fruit and a touch of alcohol. Not too bad. Flavours are pretty much the same. Biscuity malt and some alcohol. Probably the best of their beers that I have had.

Maybe I missed something but this didn’t go down well at all. Quite alcoholic without giving too much back in flavour. I referred to this a like rubbing alcohol and unfortunately that’s a very apt description.
