Bottle. Hallamshire House, Sheffield. Bottled December 2011. Clear, dark ruby red. Thin, dense, slow moving, lasting, tan coloured head. The nose has a very savoury, meaty, beefy, soy sauce thing going on. Lots of liquorice. Some ripe, black fruits. Hint of vanilla. Hint of peppery spice. Loads of depth. As it warms, a cherry liqueur chocolate sweetness comes in. Taste is rich, dark chocolate bitter. Some dryness, too. Sweetness on the lips. Palate is rich, smooth, boozy, and a little oily. Finishes with some smoky sweetness, and a chewy, rich, bitterness. Yer genuine rabbit gravy of a beer.
