Yeasty malty slightly sweet aroma. Dark red amber with thick off white head. Tons of lacing. Nothing to write home about. Not bad. A little more bitterness than I expected. Nothing else really stands out.

Clear brown pour with thin tan foam. Aroma of caramel and biscuit with a slight, not-unpleasant astringency. Flavor is remarkably balanced - sweet caramel malt offset by a semi-dry nutty finish. This is smooth and delicious. A favorite of the style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a deep brown colour with a foamy off white head. Aroma of chocolate, raisin, roasted nuts, some brown sugar and caramel. Taste of roasted nuts, chocolate, raisin, caramel and spicy, earthy hop bitterness. Light bodied but quite a watery texture. A dry, bittersweet, nutty, cookie finish. Really nice malty flavours with great British hop bitterness. Shame it’s so thin for a 5 percenter.

Belíssima cor marrom envelhecido. Aromas intensos de malte com notas de caramelo, nozes, toffee, chocolate. E no paladar, corpo médio com os sabores seguindo a linha dos aromas. Excelente!
