Flavour is quite strongly ashy along with some toasted and toffeeish notes. As for the flavour a bit strong on the ashy side, otherwise very pleasant!

Opaque black - brown beer, tidy tan head. Palate is viscous and soft, semi dry. Creamy dark malt with mellow coffee and traces of roast and lactose. There is a sweet fruity note in the undertone, touch of tinned mango. Semi dry finish with mild malty linger. Not bad!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from the brewery drunk at home. Black beer lasting thin tan head. Big hoppy chocolate on the aroma. Lots of hop lots of chocolate. Smooth in the mouth. I mean it’s good. Big flavours. Will do well on this site for ratings I think. And I like it. Big hop, big choc malt. Not ruined by being barrel aged. Yet. Even some cassis on the aroma and more in the flavour. Some lightish espresso coffee. Mouthfeel is good. It’s an enjoyable strong stout. Probably the best beer I’ve had from these guys so far. Yes, a good stout. Maybe just lacking a touch of character on the swallow. Super drinkability though.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2014 Bottle at home in London. Version with ABV of 7.4%, bottled on 06/02/2013, so the beer has had plenty of time to develop. Pours deep brown-black with a huge, lasting beige foam head. The aroma is quite dynamic, with plenty of well roasted malts at the core, surrounded by baking cocoa, some dark fruits and toasted bread. Medium sweet flavor with rich, slightly bittersweet cocoa, restrained charred malts, some raisins, chocolate cake, light flinty minerals, some dark bread, milk chocolate. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation and an exceedingly creamy mouthfeel. The finish has just a touch of alcohol warmth, followed by lots more richly roasted malts, baking cocoa, moderate scorched earth bitterness, ash, slight tobacco and further chocolate cake. Rich and complex, this beer is also impressively well balanced and drinkable. If you happen to be sitting on a bottle of this beer that was released in early 2013, I would drink it now because I cannot envision it getting any better than this.
