Pours the colour of treacle. Nice white head/lacing.

Smell is caramel, a little rauch. Some chalk and even sulfur, generally mineral-y. Perhaps a little metallic, vitamin-y, Alesmith Wee Heavy-style. A little bit of Scotch (presumably from the smoked malt).

Taste is caramel, carob, coffee. Little bit of smoke here too. Some gingko.

Nice thick, creamy, mouthfeel. Good element of the beer.

Complex beer which I could see myself drinking again occasionally.

Serving type: bottle
