Keg at BrewDog Shepherd’s Bush - London. Pours clear amber-gold with a creamy, light tan head. The nose holds leaves, dry bread, dried citrus. Medium to big sweet flavor with lightly toasted bread, leafy bitterness, dates. Full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Moderately warming to finish with dried toast, dried fruits, berries, burnt honey. Novel. Like a big bitter, yeah. Not bad.
