Drank from my Mane Liquor Tulip

A - Pours a thick Ebony colour with no light visible. The head is two fingered and tanned. It retains very well and laces.

S - Plenty going on with caramel, vanilla coffee etc

T - Wow so smooth. The vanilla and caramel are very prominent the finish is nice toffee notes and biscuit. Absolutely no sign of the 10% abv.

M - Full body and low carbonation. So very smooth indeed.

O - Well this is an awesome brew. I'm so very pleased its my 800th review. The balance in this beer is brilliant and the mouthfeel is perfection.

500ml bottle served in an English pint glass.

A: Pours a creamy liquid with an oily black color. Forms a big, creamy and quite bubbled tan head. Good retention and lots of thin but quite molasses lacings in the glass

S: Very reach nose. Strong notes of roasted malts, honey, chestnut, chocolate, coffee and plums. Some citrus notes. Grassy hops and a bit booze

T: Perfect taste. Great bittersweet balance. Very complex. Sweet upfront with strong notes of roasted malts, honey, chestnut, dark chocolate, coffee, plums, raisins and orange peel. The end is quite bitter, a mix of roastiness and grassy hops

M: Creamy, molasses, smooth heavy body. Medium carbonation. Bittersweet aftertaste, followed by some citrus and grassy notes

O: Masterpiece
