Pours copper with a large lasting head.
Nose shows toasty malt, caramel, spicy and resinous hops.
Flavours include sultanas, golden syrup, bready malt and piny, resinous hops followed by an assertive bitterness.
Much too highly carbonated.

Couleur brune, bonne mousse beige. Nez fort houblonné résineux et fruité exotique. Gout houblonné résineux, sève, avec notes douces maltées voire un peu malt grillé, tourbe, style black ipa, et notes fruitées. Bon corps. Fin longue amère. Pas mal!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
11th March 2015: 33cl bottle, BBD 31 Dec 2015. Taken in Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Good looking beer, ruby red hue to the body, a tanned topping finished it off nicely. Maybe the colour helped, but I got red berries in both the nose and flavour along with a mixed basket of other fruity esters and tastes all rolled up in a semi-sweet malty base. Very drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle at home. Pours almost a blackish red, almost to the point that it looks like a black IPA, medium to small off white head. Aroma is an interesting mix of citrus, raisins, bread, and plums? Taste is similar, very complex, citrus and tropical fruit hops with dark fruit in the malts, some bread base, but definitely raisins, plums, or the like. Lovely interpretation of the style.
