Pours a dark red-tinged brown with lovely creamy head, beige, just sitting stubbornly like a good hand-pulled head should. Lacing is gorgeous, too. What more can you expect from a hand pull except a great colour (which this also has)?
Smells lovely and grainy. Cereal notes with brown sugar, touch of carraway and sourdough. Or pumpernickel, I guess but that's on the nose a bit. Touch of sour toastiness and spice, largely sweet overall. Quite lovely.
Taste is quite toasty and fairly spicy with peppery notes, more of that carraway seed. Star anise notes on there as well and maybe a touch of espresso. Portery roast, bit of brown sugar and molasses late on the palate. Finishes a bit spicier than it needs to, and maybe a touch more roast than required as well. Nice though, good blend of characters.
Smooth as they come. Bit of texture from various flavours and sensations but just goes down nicely, like a hand-pulled beer should.
Not an everyday drinker, as the spice has a sharp edge to it, but nice and pleasantly grainy. Tastes almost healthy.
