Oh, now this is very nice.
Pouring a deep dark polished mahogany, the smell is woody red fruit and a twist of lemon.
The malts are big and chocolatey, full of stewed plums and a cup of good coffee, toffee coated biscuits and some All Spice.
As you work your way down the glass the chocolate takes on a lovely bitter burned toast flavour, and over it the hops are sharp and snappy.
You get lots of nettle tea, Dandelion And Burdock, cola bottle sweets and bracken greenery.
All this makes for a finish that’s dry and bitter lemon juice poured over a bar of Bournville chocolate.
Very nice indeed.
