This tawny coloured ale is secondary fermented in the bottle. Made from fresh quality water, malt, hops and yeast, it is a strong ale with a wonderfully rich aroma and flavour of fruit cake, treacle and plum.
[Bottle from Brewery] Deep brown with some ruby tinges and a dense moderate head which maintains a thin layer. Aroma of chocolate, treacle, molasses, fruity character, tobacco. Full, firm body, some sweetness, vinous character, a little alcohol comes through in the finish.
Pours opaque drak ruby with porous head that quicky dissapates to nothing bar a thin line round the edge of the glass. . No lacing to speak of. Big tarry, treacle nose with discernable alcohol. Mouthfeek is thin, but flavour builds. Reminds me strangely of vodka/coke. Alcohol is definitely present. Slightly smoky, definite chocolate and tar flavours but remains really ripe and fruity. Flavor lasts but quickly disintegrates with more tar and ashtrays to finish (but still a hint of something more fruity).
