L- Deep chestnut/(red). Pours with 1cm fine tan head, slowly reducing.
S- Quite fruity, as in deeply rich/molasses/fruity Christmas pudding, something I associate with 7-9% dark European beers, especially winter beers.
T- Pungent, rich toasty, deep crystallised fruits, 'heavy' notes of British Christmas pudding. Getting all this flavour from just a 5% ABV is quite novel to me.
F- Feels like a solid winter-warmer, it has accomplished balance of flavours, very nice indeed.
O- 'All this feel/flavour from just 5% ABV' that's what surprises me. Nice beer, packed with flavour, and with no rough edges at all. I'd happily buy this again.
330ml bottle. Bought from Cold Storage supermarket, Singapore. BB: 03/04/2019
[Just thinking aloud: Wld be very interesting to see another version of this at say 7-7.5%!]
