A 500ml bottle with a BB of Feb 2012. Acquired from a webshop. The label describes this as a dark brown bitter. Apparently it's a revival of a beer from the earlier days of the brewery.

Poured into a tulip pint glass. A dark orange-amber hue with low carbonation and floating sediment. Forms a small off-white head that lasts for a minute or so before vanishing. Aroma of grainy caramel malt with hints of nuts, fruit, sugar and subtle floral/bittering hops.

Tastes of caramel malt with a crisp, dry bitterness. A nutty character, with hints of roasted grain and brown sugar. Aromatic hop notes add a floral overtone. A significant bitter finish. Mouthfeel is smooth and tingly; light but not insubstantial. The low carbonation seems just right. Somewhat astringent. Aftertaste of bitter malt.

Not bad, not bad at all. A nice malty body with a proper bitter finish. The aromatic hops provide more breadth than you find in the average bitter. Tasty and drinkable - worth trying if you come across it.
