UPDATED: NOV 14, 2013 On gravity at the brewery open day. Pecan pie and caramel on the nose, leading into a peppery, nutty, sweetish body with a good alcohol bite and a hint of apple. The finish is dry. Re-rate in bottle, aged for 3 years: deep red-brown with a big fluffy cream head and a peppery hop nose with a hint of toffee. Body is dry and bitter, then with a little fruit and caramelised nut emerging, a very faint touch of honey, and then a drying, sharply bitter finish. Impressive.
