Pouring with a wispy but retained white head its colour is a deep, deep gold, it has apparently been aged in Armagnac (brandy) barrels. It has a very subtle nose for such a big beer, certainly hoppy but very restrained. The taste is thick syrup, honey-like but so very smooth with a light bitterness in the after taste. Another dangerous drink that doesn’t taste its strength.
