Opaque black - brown beer with a good pale tan head. Nice mellow cognac and dark malt nose. Palate is light and semi dry. Smooth and easy going dark malt. Trace of wood. Very nice sweet and mellow cognac. Whisper of spicy ester. Semi dry finish. Quite simple for BA beer but this works well.

Bottle at Bruce’s, London. Enjoy the rarity, friends. Pours clear, deep brown with red highlights, and a good, firm beige foam head. Dusty chocolate in the nose, some dark candies, hints of toasty toffee. Medium sweet flavor, lots of dry wood, some hints of earth, dirt, light alcohol, baking cocoa. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Quite dry to finish, charred wood, further baking cocoa, subtle roast, dirt. Quite mellow overall with nice flourishes here and there.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home. Dark brown-black, thick creamy beige head fades with lots of lacing. Soft warm cocoa, slight tobacco, slightly earthy oak, slightest touch of vanilla on the nose. Lots of dark roast chocolate flavours, just a hint of sweetness. Quite sharp bitter roast, medium body, charcoal bitterness and a hint of soft sharp fruits on the finish. Ok. A bit unbalanced.
