A lovely clear copper looking beer. Very malty and got some umph. A good solid 3.5 out of 4, a cracker for real ale drinkers.

Malty leather smells. Pours a rich brown orange with a big quickly dissipating off white head. A lot of fine lacing. Great tastes of caramel and leather. A soft sour finish. Really distinctive and nice.

2016 catch up - I got the temperature just right and the flavour was excellent. Malt, oak and a very nice level of bitterness. The alcohol was well hidden and there was a very nice mouthfeel. I like this a lot.

Déçu car marqué vieilli donc je m’attendais a quelque chose de plus fort en goût.

Mahogany body light beige head Restrained malty herbal nose. Herbal bitterness is balanced with hints of caramel. It is distinctive but I can't say what it is. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
