Pours an amber colour, slight cloud with nice foamy cream-coloured head. Retains thick and beautiful; massive even. Looks nice and sticky.
Smells fairly malty upfront. Caramel sweetness with a touch of bitter nuts. British-style hops come through on the back, slightly herbal and grassy with a subdued citrus kick. Not bad.
Taste is a lot more complex. Similar malty notes upfront but more on the sweet side, with caramel and vanilla dominating. Blends seamlessly into a big woody finish with actual notes of dry wood on there - oak and possibly pine character that is complemented somewhat by the hops. Quite herbal with a touch of mint as well, and very oaky. Pleasant indeed.
Body is nice and full with a good texture and slight warming alcohol presence. Smooth as.
Pleasant beer, possibly a little light on the mid-palate but it finishes with a big bang of flavour that's very well balanced.
