Fin (8172) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2015
On tap at Craft, Clerkenwell Saturday 7th February 2015 Pours black with a filmy beige head. This drinks far easier than it should considering the hefty abv. A dark fruity tang with some sticky dates and fig perhaps, tricky rating this whilst stood up, suffice to say the beer is good stuff. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov15 3.8

leebotton (291) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2015
Rich but controlled burnt chocolate aroma with a sweetness present but equalled by the roasty notes. A zing from the fruit is perhaps so subtly noticeable in the aroma but this could be imagined. Head is very dark, orange chocolate cappuccino, thin but returning well when shook. Woah. The flavour journey is a complex one. It’s very thick and chocolatey at first with dark malty roast to Marmite tones. It has a tart element behind all the thickness and sweetness giving way to a strange flavour at the back which reminds me of toe nails or dead skin. Not that it tastes just like these things, probably.. but that’s my thought. There’s a bit of smoke in there too.

Tap at CBC 2014. Beer in the glass deep black, small head. Heavy malty aroma. Starts intense malty, fine notes of liquorice and coffee. More and more dry. Earthy-malty finish. Nice!
