Impression: This is a beer I’ve wanted since first coming to the brewery. Much richer and maltier than the already malty flagship, this is nevertheless a drier and cleaner beer despite its over the top 8+ alcohol content. There’s an unmistakable honey note in the nose which intermingles with the underlying hops for a moreishly semi-dry finish. The first one went down too easily but I felt it when I started the second one!

Next beer or back to the beer list.
