This has been sitting in the fridge waiting for the right moment. Gee wizz did it impress! Why I didn't have this on cask while living in London makes me kick myself (sigh).
Presents a lovely dark copper colour, with a fluffy white head. Smells of complex malts and earthy english hops. Engages the tongue with a sweet toffee, malty sweetness with an earthy subtle hoppiness. A surprisingly light lingering bitterness balances the malty rich palate. The ABV is well hidden.
My sample seemed particularly fresh - from the International Beer Shop, West Leederville.
