COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask & Bottled;
A historically accurate beer based on the recipe devised on the 8th of February 2007.

Recreated using the finest coloured malts which provide the complex sweet malt character which initially arouses the senses. Like a fine cheese cake the biscuit base has a smooth and creamy layer that both satisfies and entices. Culminating with a delicate fruit topping of blackcurrant and tinges of citrus to refresh the participant, complimented fully by the crisp dry bitter finish.

Pours brown with a creamy head. Aroma is malty. Pretty boring amber beer. Some malt flavour but not much else.

330ml bottle from Brewdog.com (£1.29 approx):
Opening very well, this beer got off to an excellent start thanks to how good the nose was when it came through with tonnes of caramel malts & sweetness, some toffees backing them up as well. Things changed after that though, the taste being an altogether different affair with less sweetness & caramel but a lot more bitterness & earthy flavours which weren’t too my liking after the great opening to the beer. Throughout it remained an enjoyable beer but sadly the change of direction wasn’t completely to my liking & I feel like I would have liked this one more had the caramel flavours continued throughout; nice stuff but nowhere near as good as the brewery’s 5 A.M. Saint for me I’m afraid.

weark (858) - Morges, SWITZERLAND - MAY 27, 2017
Bouteille achetée chez BrewDog - De couleur brune rubis, avec une belle mousse fauve qui dure et colle - Au nez des arômes malté, caramel, biscuit, café, des houblons résineux, floraux et légèrement agrumes - En bouche toujours bien malté qui tend un peu sur les fruits rouges, toujours ces notes de caramel et de café, les houblons sont toujours bien présent, floraux et légèrement agrumes - Corp moyen, amertume moyenne, carbonation correcte, lisse et souple, final amère herbacé et café - Simple mais une belle réinterprétation du style, plus sur le brun que l’ambré
