33cl Bottle: BBD 16th Jun 16. Poured into a La Chouffe tulip at home on 3rd Dec 13.

Looked fine: dull dark amber/mid-reddy-brown. The head was a full foam covering of off-white bubbles.

The nose leads with malty molasses: a strong treacle taste comes along once the beer got to my mouth. This is sweet from the start with the alcohol and bitterness arriving later on the palate: there is also a spicy and yeasty feel to the flavours and smell.

I like sweet malty brews and this fits nicely into my style.

33cl bottle into a tulip glass. Pours clear copper/brown with a frothy off-white head. Smell is oranges, honey, leather...this is starting to sound like a scene from 50 Shades of Gray. Taste is nutty and biscuity, much sharper than it smells. Mouthfeel is pleasantly slick with a touch of stickiness. OK, now I can't get the 50 Shades references to stop. Overall it is a really nice beer, more intense than a strong pale ale normally would be. That gives it a lot of interest in my book. Haha. I said "book".
