DBA is a “Strong English Ale” and it’s really rather nice even if personally I’d contest just how “strong” it is.
Pouring a dark copper, this is a malt heavy beer with a smell that’s hazelnuts and treacle and just a hint of chocolate.
Taking a swig you get a chewy toffee base, well baked digestive biscuits, honey and black pepper.
The hops are bitter and pithily floral, all dandelion and burdock, garden herbs and a splash of lemon juice, but they’re subdued by the weight of the malting that leaves a satisfyingly warm and sticky finish.
