What a beer. Dark and inviting. It begins with that fruit attack on the tongue and then the hops linger just enough to make you want more. So go back to the bar and order another one !

Tap(CBC Clerkenwell):Deep amber coloured with a ruby sheen; moderate sweetish plummy and toasty nose with distinctive herbal hops in the background; moderate, but pretty distinctive, bitter-sweet flavour, soft and almost medium bodied; lingering more herbal than roasty than plummy finish. A good one…

Bottle. Nose is plum, sticky dark fruit, slight smoke. Taste is wood, strong plum ’falvouring’, bitter smoke in the finish. Mouthfeel is good.
Very bored of the tacky plum note by the end of the glass, meh.
