Bottle at home in London - many thanks to BlackHaddock for the trade! Pours clear, deep red-brown with a large, billowing tan froth head. Nose has earth, hints of tangy citrus, roasted malts, burnt pine. Light to medium sweet flavor with burnt grass and pine, some tangy grapefruit, a bit of bittersweet baking cocoa, hints of the alcohol, well toasted bread. Medium bodied with lively, explodes-in-your-mouth carbonation. Light warmth to finish, further tangy citrus, dark bread, some lime, roasted malts, dirty pine, bitter earth. Decent effort.
