Sampled on tap at Boundary Bay Brewpub, pours black with a tan head. Aroma of espresso, roasted malt and burnt caramel. Very burnt flavour, in a good way, of burnt roasted malt, burnt espresso and a slight peaty character - noticeable hoppy finish along with these burnt notes, which balances very nicely. Wonderful.
