The flavor is dominated by dark notes of burnt sugar, spicy hops and smokiness from peaked malt. Unpasteurized * Unfiltered * Bottle-conditioned.
Ingredients: water, barley malt, sugar, hops, yeast.

Theydon_Bois (11666) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2015
Bottle split at Chriso Easter tasting, 04/04/15. Pitch black with a decent tan covering. Nose is rich chocolate, spice, earthy roast, toffee. Taste comprises dark fruit notes, chocolate, molasses, toffee fudge, peppery spice, toasted brown sugar. Medium + body, fine carbonation, drying close. No game changer but a decent enough impy.

Reimer96 (1452) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 17, 2015
Pours an opaque black with a small brown head that leaves good legs on the glass. Aroma of anise, roasted malts, cocoa, smoke, campfire and black licorice... Great Aroma. Taste is peated malts, roasted malts, black licorice, burnt sugar and a smooth bitterness on the finish. Complex and balanced with a bit of a cloying mouthfeel likely due to the addition of sugar.
