Mash Paddle could do with a bigger grip, has to be held like a Numpty or you get blisters from stirring:

Did a third sparge, thanks EcDy for the tips, and collected 10L @ 1020 which I boiled down and added back to the copper and boiled until just before my pre-boil volume before adding my bittering additions:

Nottingham Yeast Pitched dry at about 24-25c

*Bottled 10th July ’10

**The ‘almost 6 months old taster’ 🙂

Aroma is quite subtle, alcohol and hints of Leather or liquorice.
Taste is also pretty subtle lots of alcohol there.
Carbonation is just a slight tingle, no head retention to mean anything.
Overall smooooth, silky, surprisingly drinkable with a spicy edge.
