Hunter's Brewery - Full Bore Strong Ale 8%
Taste: Smells strong and sweetly alcoholic. Worryingly, it has a ghostly glugg. Meaning, that I can't taste much. In the distance, I think someone's spilt sherry on the carpet. That taste is now filling my head and steam is emanating from my nostrils. It's getting better, that's the 8% working then. Tastes better with yoghurt than pasta for some reason.
Appearance: A smoking gun on the label really speaks to me.
Would you buy 2? I would share two with a friend to reset the clocks.
Would you buy 4? Four??? Hmmm, I doubt it, The strength says yes yes, but the taste is saying no no.
Rating (out of 7): 4**** It's warmed my cockles for sure, but I demand more taste.
