Thornbridge Brewery Kill Your Darlings (5%)

Kill Your Darlings is a malt heavy dark lager with a big biscuit and toffee aroma.
It smells, according to my four year old daughter who knows such things, like a toffee apple.
She’s right.
And that toffee apple continues right through the beer with rich fruit juice and sticky toffee, all on a great big digestive biscuit base.
Thornbridge have added a bunch of Amarillo and Tettnanger (spelled wrongly on their bottles) hops and so I was expecting a nice big citrus floral hit to cut across all this caramel, but it sadly gets lost under the weight of the massive malts that slush about feeling all fat and dollopy.
To be honest I’m more than a little disappointed.
