500ml bottle pours a perfectly clear gold with small white head. Spicey nose with vanilla and surprising chocolate note?? Great taste, forward malts with roasted nuts and slightly oaky notes. Spicy hops kick in to balance the lovely malty fore taste. Really good full mouth feel for the abv. Cracking beer.
