Pours orange, thick gloopy, orange, no head really, probably the most viscous I’ve ever seen a brew be. Smells like a Christmas Pudding. Dark Fruits, Raisins, Plums, Caramel, Toffee. Like drinking Treacle, its that thick. Initial plums, cherries, raisins, caramel, toffee, port, blackberries, touch of fizz, very fruity. Breadiness too. Very good.
