Notes / Commercial Description:

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a very dark amber colour with a creamy head and masses of lacing.

Smells very malty, with a hint of chocolate as well as a bit of spice.

Tastes quite spicy and zingy on the tongue, dark malts and rich dark fruits too. A hoppy bitterness and a lingering burnt taste on the finish.

Overall a lovely warming ale. Note: Cwrw Gaeaf is Welsh for Winter Ale.
