I was very pleased to finally get my hands on a beer from this brewery, and I wasn’t disappointed.
The beer is a glorious ruby red with a thick creamy head.
The smells are massive treacle toffee and plum pudding, and the plums continue into the beer.
This is an enormous drink, deep and unctuous and thick with baked fruits.
There’s a terrific hit of single malt whisky heat, warming you through and leaving a hint of smoke. Towards the end you also find some fine hopping – a surprisingly light floral bite and hints of heather greenery.
I want more of this.
