On tap at Craft Beer. Clear dark amber beer, little bubbly off white head. Light and very dry palate. Low, almost non existent, carbonation. Sweet dry caramel starts before getting a smack in the chops from astringent bitter bitter orange and bubblegum. Extremely dry finish with a long bitter bitter linger. Struggled through quarter of a pint of this and then drain poured. I like big beers and Thornbridge have done some fantastic big beers but this one ticks no boxes at all for me. Original rating 2.0.

Borefts Beer Festival 3. A retry of a beer I really didn’t like, never going to be a fan of this but a little time has passed and the dryness and the bitterness have faded a bit. Caramel toffee malt, bitter english hops, mild orange citrus. Ok now - at least drinkable.

Cask, 9.4%. Teaish, caramelly aroma. Almost clear amber or copper colour. No head. The flavour is sweetish and teaish. Not very alcoholic, but there is a slightly rough bitterness in the finish that might be the alcohol.
