Keg in Central London. £7.50 a half… served chilled. Thin brown colour. The initial sip blew my socks off. Rich sweet malty with a raisin and vinous finish. Big big flavour with a big sticky body. Wow. A bit sickly, but good. A sipper. Flavour dies down after a while.

Taste is sweet again, quite boozy, almost syrupy with molasses and licorice. Raisins and some oak. Mouthfeel is thick with good carbonation. Overall, very good quad.
