Easy going beer. Maybe a hint of sour among the fruit (fig?). Pleasant all the way. Fruit early with great mouthfeel en route to splash if bitter at end. Five malts provide great base. Yum. 500ml. 4.6%. 1.8std drinks.

500ml bottle from Archive. Exceeded expectations which were pretty low. Deep brown colour with a decent head and aroma. Malty flavour is quite good.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured an opaque black colour with a three- to four-finger light tan head that collapsed fairly fast to a 5mm bubbly head that laced poorly. Aroma faintly of sweet caramel and sweet malt. Taste firstly of roasted grain followed by sweetness and dryness and not bitter. Medium body. Sweet, light, clean, smooth with a dry finish. Quite nice.
