3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, found in the beer cooler of the gourmet food shop on Schweitzer. Must be left over from last season. Pours a handsome copper penny hue with a rather thin almond head. Very inviting aroma equally of chocolate and caramel, undertones of burnt sugar. Brown sugar malts, light cocoa, light marzipan, hints of vanilla. Well balanced with a hoppy bitter finish. English strong ales can be really hit & miss for me. This one was a solid hit. Very tasty.
