Single bottle from Premier Gourmet - never had it before, but enjoyed the Shugga substitute last year.
Poured into a tulip. Light caramel amber, half inch of head that yields some solid lace and a thick ring. Nice looking brew.
Nose is quite rich and inviting. Sugar, sweet malt, resin, citrus, good hop presence to it but the malt is definitely dominant here.
Very tasty brew, nice and sweet but with a nice dose of citrus hops. Caramel, candied peach. The brown sugar is quite enjoyable. Good balance of sweet and bitter, citrus and sugar.
Nearing barleywine in terms of feel, alcohol is barely present despite its strength.
Enjoyed this one a great deal, would definitely pick up a few more in the future.
