No 117 - Old Tom Strong Ale (England)

A deep, tight, concentrated nose with notes of damp earth, soap, ripe black cherrys, pickled ginger and banana. Very complex, deep and sweet. Very, very good.
The taste is big and with broad shoulders, with notes of dark chocolate, ripe banana, muscovado sugar and a touch of ginger. The alcochol warmth (8,5%) makes the finish long, intense and powerful. This is good!

93p   (tasted from bottle - 2011/05)
