A dark, chestnut ale with a full, rounded palate and clean after taste. In the brewer's own words, it has a "persistent, cherry fruitiness with a fascinating interplay of sweet and bitter flavours. There is a hint of Scotch Ale in the full, malty taste of this beer. This is an ale to be tasted and considered. Brewed mainly from Crystal malt with a Challenger and Golding hop mix in copper, this is an interesting beer.
