Pours a clear coppery brown. Medium-sized head that fades very slowly.
First Sip: Dark toffee and dark malts flavours prominent, with some caramel after-taste and a little hops and the taste of alcohols lurking around in the background. The Mouth feel is a little watery and fizzy, with a slighty astringent finish. Caramel and hops become more noticeable as the glass warms, but the overall flavour doesn't improve.
The taste of alcohol is something I expected since this beer is 8.2%, but it is very subdued in taste and still creates a nice warming feeling in the belly. This is a brew to have with a meal or to sip very slowly, or it'll knock you on your bum. I am halfway though the glass and I can tell a few would certainly have me wearing the wobbly boots. It is a rather nice beer.

Sip... Sip... Sip... oops, forgot to take the second photo.
Same again, sir? Yes.
