UPDATED: FEB 8, 2016 Bottle 500ml. Served at cellar temperature. Pours a clear copper with a foamy, off-white head that is mostly lasting. Aroma is sweet and malty with earthy hops, toffee, vanilla bean, brown sugar, muscatels and marmalade . Flavour is very smooth and sweet with a light earthy hop bitterness, chestnuts, caramel, biscuits, brown sugar, dried currants and dried peaches. Medium bodied with soft carbonation, a chewy texture and a good length finish. Well hidden alcohol content. Finishes a little ’thin’ but tasty all the same.
