Nose
Smooth, soft caramel and barley sugars from the malt. Slightly floral, with a little spicy alcohol.
Palate
Mostly sweet, but balanced and warming, with some faintly varnish-like esters and hints of dried vine fruits.
Finish
Dry, with hops emerging to increase the bitterness.
Comment
A strong, smooth ale in which the strength shows through perhaps a touch too boldly. It could also use more complexity.
