Spied this beauty on my 1st visit to Sandbach’s wonderful ‘Beer Emporium’. Comes in a stylish swing top bottle, embossed motifs, and at 6.3 cl (630ml to us in the UK) it’s a chunky and solid bottle of fun.

If the bottle is beautiful, then what’s inside is absolutely stunning. 

A Dark amber orange brew, silky and still and luminescent.  It has a deep hoppy nose, uncommon for the more continental brews, but also holds a slight vanilla sweetness which gives a depth and roundness to the aroma.

Wait for the foamy mountainous white head to settle before taking the first anticipated swig, unless you can’t wait, and don’t mind a face full of froth!

A good amount of alcohol flavour wraps around the mouth, but this is accentuated by spicy notes of ginger and nutmeg, and a sweet aromatic orange fruitiness, continuing through a long soft sweet finish.

This beer would be great as a finishing accompaniment to a nice warm bread and butter pudding; certainly a dessert ale!

Sweet, Spicy, Strong, and Satisfying, with a funky bottle to boot!

I cannot suggest you try this enough!
