This bottle-conditioned British ale pours far darker than I'd expected - a deep copper colour. The taste is sweet and bitter competing for attention in equal measure, with the alcohol (7.2%) announcing itself loudly too.
There's a gorgeous licorice note in the aftertaste, and that just rounds this out perfectly.
Altogether, it may not conform to what I'd call a triple, but who really cares about the strict classification of styles? This is a very tasty treat regardless.
