COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Previously 7.0%.

Espresso and Stout. A bewitching blend of two rich, roasted flavours. We use the finest fresh coffee to enhance the decadent pleasure of this dark and complex beer. Black as sin and just as much fun.

Bottle from steep hill wines, sheffield. Black ale with tan head. Aeoma is coffee and a bit of liquorice. Taste is rich and deep coffee bitterness. Quite thin for a stout, tingly carbonation.

ATulloch (121) - Aberdeenshire, SCOTLAND - NOV 8, 2014
Bottle from deeside drinks emporium. Pours an oily black with a small toffee head which fades. Lovely aromas of coffee and a dark chocolate sweetness. A strong coffee flavour with a subtle hint of caramel. Slight bitter finish. Beautiful.

gegwilson (1378) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2014
Keg in the Tithe Bar, Northallerton. Pours black with a thin tan head. Nice and rich with pleasant roast flavour and a good coffee finish. A little thin and lacking in complexity, but still an enjoyable beer.

imdownthepub (10574) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2014
Cask conditioned at York Beer Festival ’14. Black with tan head. Initially this is quite sweet and fruity with a peachy edge but then a black coffee hint comes through, deeply roasty and dark, hints of dark chocolate. Improves through the beer and ends pretty decent.

Niall73 (1861) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2014
Tap at brewdog shepherds bush. Pours dark brown/black with a tan head. Light creamy, choc aroma with light coffee. Medium body, medium carbonation. Light choc, light coffee, hint of toffee, light rum... It's good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ferris (4730) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 22, 2014
Bottle - Dark bitter roast malts and some dark fruit. Jet brown with a rich light brown head. Dark roast malts and the espresso slightly in the finish. A light fruity acidity is in the background which diminishes the richness.

YorkshireG73 (38) - West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2014
Looks just like Espresso. Not as aromatic but can taste the beans. Hint of vanilla. Mild heat - like a minute dash of chili was added, Slight sour taste but balances well. Expected more nuttiness. Tastes like there’s a drop of 5X in there even though there isn’t. Roasty malt loaf finish sticks to roof of mouth. Good.

SilverfoX (375) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2014
mega coffee aroma with brown sugar, pitch black body with thick tan head. Tastes sweet and rich flavours of molasses and coffee (obviously...) thinner on the palate than i expected but still really good!

Rune (8343) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 1, 2014
Hand-pulled cask ale at York Tap, half-pint. Faint fawn-coloured head to a devil-black body. Quite rich aromas of roasted malts, tobacco, coffee, and chocolate sweetness. Brown and black malty flavours of liquorice, coffee and earth leading to a roasted bitter ending. Surprisingly easy to drink. Likeable (York 10.07.2014).
