Bottle. Dark amber reddish beer with a great frothy head. The aroma is well hopped with a touch of roastedness. The flavour is extremely well hopped with bags of bitterness and dryness, some maltiness and roastedness as well . Overall a very nice pale ale.

Pours a clear dark amber with a small creamy off-white head. Malty burnt caramel and fruitcake (brandy and fruit) aroma. Sweet malty beginning followed by burn’t brandy soaked raisins with a long mellow bitter finish. A very nice pint, I think I’ll have another.

Pours a beautifully clear dark amber with medium carbonation and a good cream head. Aroma is malt forward with some dark crystal in there, but there’s hops there too from the Goldings. Caramel, dark sugar, raisin, tangerine, blackcurrant, biscuit, with some smoke and spice. Nice boozy, smoky finish. Decent beer.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home. Pours amber brown in colour. Quite lively out of the bottle with a large off-white head that settles to a good, small collar of foam. The sediment did not kick up on the pour. Not much aroma, all I got was biscuit malt, maybe some fruit. Some sweetness to start on the taste, then a lot of bitterness. Rich mouthfeel with sweet fruit and malt and peppery hop. Long dry finish with a yeast background. A good, strong, bitter beer.
