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.

MrBlueSky93 (479) - Sutton Coldfield, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2015
Bottle from Bier Huis. Pours dark brown almost black in colour with a single finger tan coloured head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, dark fruits, raisins, herb. Taste of initial dark roasted malts, toffee, caramel, then we have chocolate, heavy carbonation, coffee, smoky flavours, some dark fruits. Nice.

redders1974 (286) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2015
Pretty disappointed to be honest love stout love coffee this should be a winner for me. Pours like cola to sweet on taste like an innis and gunn creation needs to be more smokey more bitter and more dry with some kind of head.

gegwilson (1939) - 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 (11285) - 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.
