22 oz. bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks Dany), split with manuchampions, pours dark murky reddish brown with a small beige head. Aroma of toffee and mixed tropical dark dried fruits. Flavour is unsuspectingly peppery, with caramel / toffee, dark fruits and chocolate cake, finishing with a slighty hoppy and caramely finish. Robust palate, with a complex flavour profile that lasts and lasts. Most wonderful.
