July 2016 - Bottle share at Craft Beer Co Islington as ’The Bruery Melange #8’. Many thanks to Kenny for this 14.5% beast. Dark brown, hazy, foamy tan head. Aroma is toffee and cola, caramelised sugars. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste has more cola, resinous pine, toffee, creamy coffee, vanilla. Works pretty well. Tasty stuff. One of those rare occasions where I feel a Bruery beer is balanced and drinkable. (3.8)
