Bottle shared at Bruce’s in London - many thanks to Josh. Pours dark brown with a frothy brown head. Good dark malt nose, some dirt, roasted coffee, burnt cocoa. Medium sweet flavor, plenty of bittersweet chocolate, coffee grounds, bitter earth, toast. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly warming finish, plenty of bitter earth, coffee, baking cocoa, restrained booziness. Lingering baking cocoa. Great beer overall.

Bottle at the Martin T tasting, CBC, 06/06/13 - big thanks to Jack for this one. Mid black with a decent sized tan head that retains well. Nose is chocolate, light smoke, dark malts, roasty, mineral tones, dark toffee. Taste comprises dark and bitter chocolate, molasses, roast malt, mineral notes, light spice. Full bodied, fine carbonation, roast finish with light spice and little warming alcohol. Decent impy, good balance, alcohol well integrated - a definate go to.

Oily, lovely resin, slick like Grace. Burning and looting. All the bits on the description are spot on, all of them. Clearly I like. The wife and I talked about doing one today, upping sticks and disappearing to foreign climes. You know what popped in my head? ABL baby, we got unfinished leakage.

330ml bottle. Pours jet black with a large head. Aroma has lots of dry roast and yeast, with a touch of beef. Taste has light roast to start with a roasty, liquorice finish. Very oily mouthfeel.
