Thwaites - Old Dan

After an afternoon spent at the Crewe Beer Festival, I stopped off at Waitrose for a couple of bottles on the way home.
I'm not sure why but I got an Old Dan from Thwaites. It's strong at 7.4% and came in a dinky bottle. I normally steer clear of beers from large UK regionals but this just took my fancy for some reason.

It was certainly strong but didn't taste like it was 7.4%. It was quite sticky and claggy and although not unpleasant, it was quite hard-going. There was a malty aftertaste and although this is not the best beer I've ever had, nor is it the worst.
