Youngs – Winter warmer

WP_20161202_20_20_21_ProWhat do they say? Nothing on their website, however this was on

Very subdued. Malt and gentle chocolate.
Bittersweet. Smoothly malty with faint chocolate notes. Peppery, tangy hop. Caramel and pleasant barley flavours. Just a hint of cherry.
Dry, malty and yet mostly bitter. A little plain chocolate. Hops continue.

I thought it was a bit fruitier than the taster here reckons – but all our palates differ I guess. Nonetheless it was enjoyable enough but didn’t taste as strong as it’s 5.0% A.B.V. might suggest.
