Ridgeway FES bottle matures in a similar way to vintage port. Roasted malts and leaf hops initially provide an aroma of breakfast coffee and fresh spices that gradually fades to reveal licorice, caramel and raisin notes that are products of the ageing process. Beneath all this change sits a solid and resilient backbone of bitter English hop. Satisfyingly foreign. You might even imagine the glow of the peat fire?

Brown beer, small beige head. Nose is roasty, slight acidity, malt, fruity notes, some metal. Flavor is roasty, chocolate, mild hops, spice notes. Lovely hoppy-roasty finish, slight acidity in the roast. Feels a bit thin, but not distractingly so. Hides the booze remarkably well. Pretty nice.
