Poured into a pint.
Pours hazy copper with nice beige head, good retention and laces.
Smell - dried fruits, grassy hops, caramel.
Taste - rich malty, dark fruits, somewhat bready, excellent bitter palate.
Medium body and soft carbonation. Demonically excellent beer.

Poured a 500ml bottle into an English pint glass.

Poured a lovely deep ruby brown with a tight, fluffy head that disappeared fairly quickly but left quite a bit of lacing.

Intense nose with lots of dried fruit, fruitcake, malty bready notes and some hop coming through. Complex.

Palate is full and rich. Complex and malty with an assertive bitterness hitting the back of the tongue and sides of the mouth. A very long, drying finish. Beautiful.

Mouth feel is great. Very full and well-rounded with low natural carbonation.

Overall a remarkably good beer. Very complex, strong, good mouth, nose and palate. The finish is too hoppy for my personal taste. Not sessionable as it's pretty strong.

Highly recommended.

Deep copper with sticky cream head. Nose is very sweet, brown bread, candied fruit. Taste is very malty. Initial sweetness fading to bitter on back of tongue. Creamy mouthfeel. Very good, but falls short of loving it.
