beeebon (430) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2017
Pours a ruby brown slightly hazy colour with small short lasting bubbly tan coloured head. Aroma is strong sweet toffee malt with raisins, prunes, slight note of fig rolls and general sort of stewed fruit with a slight presence of alcohol. Taste wise it is initially very sweet as expected however this soon gives way to a cleansing bitterness which is also a touch sour in a pleasant way, nowhere near as cloying as I initially expected, fairly complex. Mild carbonation, enough to offset the slightly oily stickyness. Long lingering flavour and slightly dry on the finish. Pretty good

Translucent dark copper with a medium pale head. A lot of jackfruit on the nose. Flavors are pretty dull overall; some light fruit sweetness and creamy malts up front and finishes with some earthiness. Full body, no carb, dry finish. Just decent.
