Just a stunning beer. Dark chestnut hue. Aromas that are off the charts gorgeous with baking spices, bread, perhaps even some dried fruit. The breadth and depth of flavors is amazing: strong and concentrated, this is a brew worth contemplating but it maintains great balance, never veering off into booziness or fatiguing the palate. If there’s a beer I like more than this--anywhere--I can’t think of what it is. Not for those who demand overwhelming hop presence. In my book this beer is a classic.

Jado (635) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - MAY 7, 2015
From 500 ml bottle. Pours a clear but dark copper-bronze with a frothy cream coloured head. Aromas of raisins, currants, dates, stewed apple, banana and cinnamon. Taste starts out with cooked apple and pear before rich dark fruit and spice comes through. Ripe banana, more spice and a slight alcohol warmth. Medium bodied with a long finish and a warm spicy aftertaste. Excellent.
