Half pint from the Malthouse 17/8/12. Reviewed from notes.
Hazy amber-brown with a beige head that sits very still before lacing nicely.
Palapbly rich brandied-toffee and sweeter candied malts meld with loads of floral hops.
The burly, complex malt backbone is all there, now bolted on to a hefty dose of agressive earthy pine, with the floral hop caharcter re-emerging as it warms.
Chewy and full for 6% tempered somewhat by spritzy, slightly sizzly carbonation. Piney bitterness endures nicely on the back palate.
Overall, meaty is the best adjective to describe this impressive effort. The malt profile is just massive. Not super drinkable, but paradoxically, it's the meal-in-a-glass character that makes this so good. Richard, can you please bottle this!!!
