American Strong Ale
Appearance: Rich, dark auburn, with a brief off-white head.
Nose: Dark fruits, plums, massively rich chocolate, nuts, and a French espresso come through, followed by an unexpected aroma of chili pepper, warming the aroma and enticing you in.
Taste: Sweet dates and rich treacle mingle with coffee and raisins. A smoky, earthiness intrudes, followed by chili spice, before being washed over by dark chocolate and yet more plums. Finally, you are left with the decadent aftertaste of sherry-soaked figs.
