Last beer of the evening. A sipper. This beer is totally original and interesting. It defies type, and I'd class it a winter warmer - spicy, alcohol, carmel sweetness, fruit.

I didnt find it overdone, but it's sweet and rich and full bodied.

A: Hazed walnut body with fast fade head and some sticky lace.
S: Wanted more of it, but it's caramel malt on a baked apple. Apple on a stick.
T: A bit of nutmeg, but not overwhelming, atop a broad base of caramel, one of the most caramel beers I have ever had. prune/dark fruit/ ripe apple / cider. Nice long finish, not cloying.
MF: love the weight that works well with the sweet and the long almost peppery finish.

An outstanding winter warmer that'd I recommend.

22oz bottle poured into a lager glass.

A: Red-orange in color. Brilliant clarity. Sand colored rocky head leaves lots of clumpy lacing on the glass.

S: Bread, biscuit, thin caramel and treacle, toasted grain. Pinch of cocoa. Fig and golden raisin fruitiness. Clean. Light grassy hop.

T: Thin caramel and treacle. Grainy, toast. Vague fruitiness. Subtle hints of grassy hop. Sweet throughout. Syrupy treacle finish.

M: Thick body, mouth coating and syrupy. Low carbonation. Very mild perception of alcohol.

O: Even for the style this seems a little under attenuated. It comes off a little too sweet and syrupy. A decent stab at the style, but nothing I'd revisit.

Went to the brewery and tried this beer. Light in color and weak in smell. Color a little towards the red side. But the taste was very good. Beer from the tap always tastes much better. I also had the chilli stout which was great. The brew pub had good food and the city had a great port city feel.
