Opaque black beer, little tan head. Sweet coffee and dark malt nose. Soft and surprisingly light palate. Sweet dark malts, traces of coffee, chocolate and sweet brandy. The coconut is pretty subtle and on the back of the tongue. Trace of red berry fruits in the mid. Some aniseed alcohol but no real heat. Semi dry finish. Sweet, tasty and well joined up beer. Should be even better in a year or two.

UPDATED: OCT 5, 2011 Keg at the Euston Tap. Pours midnight black with a creamy, tan head. Aroma is all hoisin and soy sauce, some cocoa and roast. Very, very sweet flavor, slightly syrupy, at first candy, licorice, chocolate syrup, then some roasted malts and brown sugar. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Finishes sticky with sugar, some roasted malts, subtle coconut, dark brown sugar, soy sauce, some ripe fruits like raisins and berries, oily coconut, light smoke, mild tar and roasted malts. Huge beer, extremely sweet. Really enjoyable but I couldn’t have more than a half pint. (4.2) Update (from the past): bottle at post-ACBF 2011 tasting. Pours dark, oily brown-black with a few bubbles. Rish, roasty dark malt nose. Very sweet and syrupy flavor, some chocolate and hints of coconut. Full bodied with soft carbonation. Very oily and slightly chewy. Warm finish with moderate roast, some brownies and sugar. Nice. (4.1)
