This is most definitely a yeast driven beer. In the nose, you will find hints of pepper, fresh apples and some faint clove notes. The melange of spice and fruits blast out at you like the Devil's own pied piper. It's alluring. TASTE: There's something so silky and seductive about Golden Strong ales. At once, they are light in body yet never stray too far from the Cauldron of Alcoholic riches. Your first sip will reveal a faint malt sweetness that wil be crushed by the Overlord's love of sugar and spice and all things nice. Consuming a whole bottle may find you a banishment to hell.
