tedvard (26) - - APR 4, 2014
See: Orange brown. No discernible head just a slight white foam on top. Smell: Raisins and molasses. Taste: Dried dark fruits, raisins. Sweet at the front, bitter at the end but then the sweetness of the fruit taste comes through again at the end. Pallet: Medium carbonation. Long finish. Very interesting ale with a rich flavour. Would probably only drink one per session because of the vivid flavour but very enjoyable.
