500 ml bottle, 1 year old. Pours light brown with short lived, small white head. Aroma is of sherry, caramel, chocolate and hint of hops. Body is medium and tangy. Caramel malt, herbal hops ripe cherries, pepper mint and wood fill the mouth. Finish is long, woody, peppery and dry. Very nice, complex brew.

Pours a murky deep amber to near mahogany depending on the background. A 3 finger light tan head fills my Duvel tulip. It recedes rather quickly leaving light lacing.

The aroma is of spiced dark fruits and light caramel.

Sweet upfront but with a substantial twang and a bitternes from the hope and burnt malt. As the beer warms, the twang disappears and the bitterness mellows leaving a nicely sweet and grainy brew.

Medium full bodied and smoooth if drunk at room temperature as the Broughton website suggests.

Decent straight out of the fridge, but let it warm and as been said before, it is "bliss in a bottle".

Bottle shared by Dan.

A: Pours slightly hazy, but nearly clear brown with a 1/4" white head which fades to the edge of the glass.

N: Caramel, dark fruits, brown sugar/molasses.

T: Malty grains, some faint roast and char. Nice peaty earth notes.

M: A bit light bodied with light carbonation.

O: Just O.K. and pretty standard.
