4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Black beer with a medium mocha head that gradually reduces to ring around the side of the glass. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla and pontefract cake. Taste is chocolate and pontefract cake again along with some wood, dark berries and a hint smoke. Smooth and full bodied on palate, a little sticky. Another excellent beer from Beavertown.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Pours with a beautiful brown head. Smooth: glides over the tongue sack. Very dry in terms of its dryness. Warming on the finish and I suppose there is the sweetness of milk chocolate present, at that point. I grant you. Yes it is good.
