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.

fiulijn (21214) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 26, 2014
Bottle at Bishop’s Arms, Malmö, Gustav Adolf Torg
Beautiful color, dark amber with red reflex, but small head. Mild aroma of roasted malt, light feet. Lean mouthfeel, roasted malt flavor, too dry and too ashy for me. Correct bitterness. Disturbing character of burnt malts in the end.
As said, too ashy.
