500ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours very dark brown, but clear, big, pillowy creamy head. Aromas of hazelnuts, high-baked biscuits, light chocolate, raisins. Taste is all this and more, some dried mixed peel, more nuttiness. Medium body, creamy texture. A real treat actually, lovely example of the style.
