3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled@The Chriso Rock The Roof Down pre-GBBF shindig. Rubyish coppery colour with small off-white head. Aroma is quite much fruity, some sap as well as quite much toffee, some alcohol as well as plum. Flavour is being quite much the same, but also has a bit spicy and wooden touch to it. Flavour is not that alcoholic as the aroma would let know. Big time hoppy sweetness and bitterness in the finish. A rather pleasant brew!

Pours amber with off white head. The aroma is big with pine hops, tree sap, sweet musty crusty malts, prunes, raisins and plums. The taste is similar with big brash pummeling hops that pack punches from pine, resiny goodness and some grassiness. Behind the assertive load of hops are sweet malts that have fused with the resiny pine bitterness to create a pleasing flavor. I get loads and loads of hops balanced by slick yet deep sludgy sweet malts. It ends with lingering pine hop flavor and robust hop bitterness. Love this!
