On tap at churchkey. Dark brown almost black pour with no head. Aroma is nutty, lots of roasted malts, a bit of burnt toast. Taste of hazelnuts, caramel, with hints of roasted grain, almost coffee even. The palate is a bit light and kind of falls apart, but overall good stuff.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Crystal clear caramel brown pour with an off-white head. Aroma is caramel, nutty, brown sugar almost. Good warm sweet smell. Flavor is caramel, slightly sweet, warm honeyed nutty flavor. This is a supper but good
Maybe just a touch light on the mouth feel but very good.
