Holgate Double Trouble

Brewer: Holgate Brewhouse, Woodend.

Variety: Double Trouble Abbey Ale (8% ABV)

The marketers say: Drinks like a fine cognac or brandy – intense raisin, toffee and rum flavour

Appearance: Dark, dark brown with no head to speak of. Very little carbonation.

Aroma: Strong chocolate malt aroma.

Taste: I was expecting a little more given the colour, the aroma and the marketing. Stuggled to find much beyond the really good malt and hint of chocolate. Completly missed the “intense raisin, toffee and rum flavour” but will try to find them again 🙂

Overall: Again, I can’t comment on how true to style it was but certainly an enjoyable one to finish off the day. One at a time is probably enough.
