Lovely stuff. Strong and fruity and very drinkable. Ideal for Christmas day I’d say.

Appearance is very dark brown, a bit hazy, a thick half-finger beige head which lasts well. Looks good. Aroma- nutty, brown bread, treacle, dark malts, creamy malt, hop hints. Taste- smooth nutty malt, roast nuts, toffee, dark fruits, raisin, malt loaf, brown bread. Rich fruitcake. Smooth and slightly sticky mouthfeel with some bitter hops in the finish. Nice one.

You never know for sure how a beer will cellar, and I was worried I let this one go too long, but after one sip, those concerns are dashed. This is a very malty beer, toasty, caramely, nutty, and earthy with a pleasant smokiness to the malt. The nose is equally malty and earthy, with aromas of brown toast, roasted nuts, toffee, caramel, fallen leaves, and decayed logs. Medium-full in weight, light-medium in carbonation, and reasonably dry on the palate for such a malty beer. Clear, ruddy brown body is capped by a thin, light-tan head that settles quickly to a thin ring, leaving no lacing to speak of. Very nice to drink, enjoyable, a repeatable purchase.
