On the 25th of February it was two years to day that two of favorite brewers, Thornbridge & Darkstar formed a Coalition to brew a beer. Having tried one of there other collaborations, we were very excited about getting this in our fridges. After a week in a fermenter, 20 months in a conditioning tank and four months in a bottle we finally got our hands on it. With a scent of marmalade it pours a rich golden colour, with a lovely but not overpowering hop aroma. This is due to the gentle varieties of hop used. Liberty, Atlas & Aurora. It has a really soft mouth feel with flavours of honey, orange and oriental spices and a finish of liquorice root. Its delicious.
We intend to age a case or two in our archive, but is also on sale now priced at £12.
This is one to be sampled, sit down with two friends discuss and enjoy.
