Grainy dark chocolate aroma. Deep dark brown with a tan head. Oily texture but not massively viscous. The slight burnt flavours come through with chocolate and a bit of, I dunno, wood.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours black with a large lasting light tan head.
Nose shows roasted barley, cocoa, soft roasted coffee, a little bready malt. Appetizing.
Lovely roasted barley as a flavour, with toasty notes too. Sweetens up a little later on but theres also a faint acidity, presumably from the roasted grains
Carbonation is too aggressive.

500ml bottle. Jet black colour with average to huge, thick, creamy, fairly lasting and lacing, beige to tan head. Roasty dark malty aroma, notes of cocoa, coffee and grainy coffee surrogate, a salty touch, hints of liquorice. Taste is dry and minimally tart, roasty dark malty, slightly salty, subtle chocolately sweetness, some cocoa and coffee; soft palate, smooth carbonation. Wonderful!
