COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
A classic beer of true quality, Spooks Ale is characterised by its huge biscuity malt palate, derived from three traditional roasted barley malts used in this brew, giving a glorious deep red hue. The excitingly complex malty flavours are wonderfully balanced by a huge citrusy, hoppy bitterness and aroma from a particularly fruity hop added at four stages in the brewing process.

Pours dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is very malty, loads of caramel and earthy malts with some sweet hop bitterness. Taste is a little smokey roasty flavouring with a small floral hop bitterness. Nice drink for the halloween stroll around the neighborhood.

Has scuttle sweetness to it, aroma of light chocolate. It pours light red, and has bit of a brownish head. Tastes great, and has medium texture. Realy pleasant after taste of almost smoke like Balfour.

Svesse (8731) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - DEC 2, 2013
(Bottle) Darkish amber colour with frothy, beige head, leaving traces of lacing. Malty, fruity nose with notes of dried apricots, orange peel, dried fruit, honey and toasty, biscuity malt. Malty, slightly toasty taste with dried apricots, brown sugar, dark bread, orange peel and a certain citric bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with balanced sweetness. Well balanced and tasty. Quite enjoyable.

Boutip (6483) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 29, 2013
Bottle: Poured a clear brown color ale with a rather large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of light dry biscuit malt with some light bitter notes. Taste is dominated by dry biscuit malt with light roasted malt notes with some light dry bitter hops notes also noticeable. Body is about average with good carbonation. Enjoyable but a little bit too much toasted malt notes for my taste.
