Picked this up at the biggest beer store in the UK, Beers of Europe Ltd. Fizzy deep brown-amber pour with a tinge of ruby. Two finger head with decent retention and minimal lacing. Really unique spicy, nutty, malty nose with resiny hops and a hint of black pepper and dark fruits. The taste is unique as well. Very earthy and piney with a solid caramel malt backbone. Also getting some wet hops, hints of dark fruit and a touch of dark chocolate that intensifies as it warms. The finish is dry and slightly bitter with just enough malt sweetness. This is definitely the most unique bitter I've ever tasted.
