Very good looking beer, with deep, deep browns and reds making up the body, a small but nice head and then some serious, sticky and persistent lacing.
Hops dominante the aroma, but the taste is not as bitterly hoppy as the aroma suggests. Quite metallic tasting in fact and on warming this becomes increasingly apparent. The bitterness becomes quite bland over time.
Interesting, and the alcohol is immensely well hidden (this is close to 10%), this worth a try. I bet that many BA’s will really enjoy this, to me it was above average, but not as spectacular as some seem to think.
