330ml bottle. Whoa. Contents under pressure. I opened this guy up, and it reached for the sky. Pours a hazy chestnut, with a GIANT tan head. The nose is dried fruit, malt, light, brown sugar, and doughy, bread crust like notes. Taste is dry, alcohol, bread crust, light dried fruit, spice in the finish, almost a menthol like note too. Liquid bread. It’s tasty, and a nice change from the sweeter, dried fruit forward Belgian’s.

330ml Bottle. It pours a deep reddish brown with a light tan medium laced and long lasting head,. Its aroma is fruity and sweet with hints of caramel, chocolate and malt. Its taste is initially sweet followed by raisins, coffee, dark coca bean with a malty toffee finish that passes to dry end. Lovely beer this!
