Pours dark copper with a large, moussey head.
Nose shows sweet rich malt with treacle and sultana characters along with soft bready notes.
Not as impressive flavours. Some of the malt remains in a supporting role but it's overwhelmed by out-of-place spicy hops and a fair bit of booze.
Too highly carbonated.
