Aroma of heavy malt, chocolate, slightly dirty, slightly pub carpet. Taste is complex and smoky, marmalade. Lingering hoppy bitterness on the finish. Lovely finish actually. Very nice.

BeardedAvenger (739) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2017
Gift from the parents so thought Iíd better give it a go. Very sweet aroma - floral, berries, caramel. Dark Amber. Thin but bubbly off-white head. Sweet, with a bitter kick. As per the aroma, berries and caramel, with added quinine. Medium bodied. Slick. Soft carbonation. Astringent finish. Itís OK. Drops points for the minging bitter finish.
