Nose
Big peaty, smoky aromas with a light undercurrent of caramel.
Palate
Aromatic smoky flavours abound. More traditional dark malt flavours are there, too, all balanced by sweetness and a spicy warmth from the alcohol.
Finish
Coffee, bitter chocolate and smoky malt dominate the aftertaste, which is also dry and surprisingly hoppy.
Comment
A deep brown beer with garnet highlights, vintage-stamped and enjoying a cult following. An acquired taste but brilliantly constructed nonetheless.
