Hopshackle Brewery Extra Special Bitter (4.8%)

Extra Special BitterWith an aroma packed with toffee and fruit and nuts, Extra Special Bitter pours the colour of waxed saddle leather with only a thin wisp of a head.
The malting is king here, with well baked digestive biscuits, plums and damsons stewed in tea, walnuts, honey and black pepper.
And then there’s tamarind and aniseed in the hops that build slowly into a rich, resinous spicy bitter finish tinged with brown sugar and dates.
Super.
