Bottle. Pours a dark brown colour with a big white head, very malty aroma, the taste is bitter and malty with a dry finish.

Deep brown - russet amber with haze and a cream coloured head spread in patches across the body of the beer. Aromas similar to those of dubbels I have had in the past: cinnamon, coffee, cocoa powder and maybe a suggestion of basement/armpit. Plenty of carbonation in the mouth in the form of a lovely fizz and then more subtle date, coffee chocolate cake and mellow cocoa flavours with only a slight hint of bitterness but a caramelised orange peel flavour coming through distinctly toward the finish. There is very little to suggest that this beer is a whopping 9%abv. No obscene heat or alcohol, just a lovely sherry finished whisky-like Christmas cake flavour that politely informs you that you’ll be spending the next hour or so floating around the place and that driving is not a good idea. Initially I had my reservations, but they were allayed. This is a good new world effort of a classic old world style. Something I would like to see more New Zealand brewers had a stab at.
