Hopshackle Restoration (9%)

Hopshackle, a small brewery based in Bedford, are making some remarkable beer.
They do a range of “historic” ales based on old recipes and/or using old techniques.
The beer I have here is Restoration and it’s based on Belgian strong ale recipes.

What I can say?
This is a truly extraordinary beer.
Intense pudding fruits, rum & raisin in dark chocolate that you can almost chew, giving way to thick rich malted biscuits, bitter tamarind and orange peel punch.
And to top it all off there’s a tender floral hop to end.

Hang on to your hats, here comes a bit of a cliché.
Hopshackle say they make historic ales.
Certianly this is good enough to go down in history.
