Dark ruby red pour with a thick beige head which dissipates. Malt, bread, berries, booze, caramel, vinous, pepper, dank. Slightly dry with medium carbonation. The flavours and aromas are mostly balanced with the hoppy bitterness, malty sweetness and alcohol quite pronounced on the finish.

Bottle bb 08/2022. Pours a dark amber cox cola colour with a slightly off white head. Aroma is malty sweet cakiness - some sponge, toffee. It’s ok - toffee, malty (similar to, but not as rich as, a fuller’s vintage). Nice.

Clear dark brown beer with a small cream - tan coloured head. Palate is light and low carbonation, semi dry. Light cherry sourness under fairly neutral malt. Pinch of dust. Mild tangy orange and semi dry finish. An older bottle from Kulminator has much more obvious cherry with mildly oxidised caramel malt and a little wet wood. More intense all round and I much preferred the older one.
