Wow, this is strong, so, so strong, like Hulk strong. Lovely aroma that tricks you into thinking it’s not too strong, but it is! This will sneak up on you and leaving you broken and crying in the gutter. You’ve been warned.
330ml bottle. Pours murky orange brown. Caramel, biscuit, orange peel, deep toffee, grapefruit, pine, lots of boozy sugar stuff. Big boozy barley wine, lots of malt character, lots of sweet sugar, well bloody tasty. Lonick (2537) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 6, 2016
