Note from the taster :
A dark ale very malty taste and according to the blurp on the bottle with a hearty, warming character. Which I think is down to the 8.7% that I felt when I stood up after enjoying a bottle of this. I’m sure that if I followed the suggested food pairings on the label it wouldn’t be that bad.
A great wintry label with nice colours.
