Pours dark amber with a thick foamy head the slowly fades into crazy peaked mountains. Aroma of caramel, leather and fruit. Taste starts sweet and malty, turning bitter and a little roasty.

Meh. Not really my favourite style at the best of times, and through nobody’s fault but my own (I’ve got to get better at checking bottle dates in the store!) this thing is about a year and a half old. Still a fair bit of hops in the flavour, though, giving a fairly bitter finish, but they’ve faded somewhat from the aroma. Might’ve been a bit nicer fresh, but I doubt I would’ve loved it even then.
