75cl bottle poured into a chalice.
Pours a cloudy reddish caramel with plenty of sediment and wonderful sticky lacing. Lemon Iced tea and toffee on the nose along with some spice.
Medium bodied with bready malt and well balanced brown sugar sweetness. Was very effervescent at first but the Co2 quickly mellowed to the level of just slightly refreshing. Takes on a French toast character towards the end. The finish is where the alcohol warmth comes in, along with a distinct dried orange peel flavor.
