COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A beer both sumptuously malty yet enthrallingly hoppy, we teamed up with our friends at Dark Star for this show stopper of a beer. Multiple hop additions mean massive aromas of lemongrass, strawberry and pine, which develop on the palate while a complex malt bill delivers sweet waves of hazelnut, caramel and summer berry flavours. The finish is balanced, moreish yet crisply classy. Get ready to be entertained, Rock Star has entered the building!

Rich, malty brown ale with just the right amount of bitterness on top. Long piney tail as well. Confirming their status as one of my favourite breweries.

BeerCast_Rich (1906) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 21, 2012
[keg at the Hanging Bat, Edinburgh] Dark reddish amber beer with a nice white head looks lovely in the glass. Aroma is mostly of sweet, toffee malt, with some topical fruit and richer stone fruit. Great balance of malts on the flavour roasty caramel malt at first, before becoming progressively sweeter and fruitier. I got a lot more of that dark stone fruit on the finish, along with a slug of sweet toffee. Very nice [18122012]
