COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Colour and sight: Dark brown-red. A compact white-yellow, stable and lacing head. Scent: Touches of caramel, mocha and chocolate. Spices such as liquorice and coriander are also present. Flavour: Initially, a very good mouthfeel of alcohol and softness. This is followed by an increasing bitterness, partially from the hop, but also from the roasted malt and chocolate malt. Towards the end a nice balance between bitterness, sour and sweet.

WaddlingPlatypus (145) - Durham, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2016
330ml bottle at the Head of Steam, Durham. Dark amber pour with a pale toffee head. Rich red berries and haylage are immediately apparent in the aroma, along with wholemeal bread. The flavour is a herbal riot, comprising predominantly of cloves, fennel, celeriac, and liquorice/sambuca. Very reminiscent of some apothecarys brew, and very pleasant to drink.
