Temperature Corrected this is OG:1093 😉 :
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.
