COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our secret weapon. A fulsome, winsome strong ale. A deep copper tinged brew for the true aficionado, longer fermentation and thrice hopping bring about a complex soft bitterness allied to a malt induced sweetness with the characteristic oily Fuggles hop perfume. Not just for students. Once "stuffed" savour the flavour of a glass as a digestif... True "Aroma-therapy".

Grain: Pale Malt, Roast Barley, Black Malt, Flaked Barley.
Hops: Galena, Nugget, East Kent Goldings.

brugmanneke (283) - GERMANY - AUG 22, 2011
(bottle) Pours a slightly reddish brown color, with an off-white head. Aroma is fruity and very grassy from the hops, balanced by a nutty malt flavor. Heavy bitterness. Very full-bodied, long and bitter finish. Intense in terms of aroma and taste. Hints of sherry, as it warms a little. Delicious at first, but after a while gets out of balance because of lingering bitter taste on the palate. To be drunk with moderation. I like it.

BrewBoxer (2664) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 24, 2011
Draft. Dark brown color closr to black. Nice head that lacing lasts along the side of the glass. Aroma of banana, cheery and carmel. Looks and starts off as a belgian strong or abbey dubbel, but taste is very drinkable ands unlike any ESB I’ve had before. Not bad
