This pours a dark mahogany colour and damn is it good. There are all sorts of flavours in here. In the end you're left with a burnt toffee kind of an aftertaste. There's nothing subtle about this beer, it's full of big flavour. You drink a beer like this when the weather is cool; something substantial. If you want something "easy drinking", well piss off and drink something else. At 8% you're best to take your time and appreciate this one. It's not an award winning beer by accident. It goes well with funk cheese like stilton, just in case you like funk cheese.
