Subtle being head above black . Milky ,roasted and rich nose suggesting chocolate. Creamy oats ,some dark fruit ! It was Friday night and this was smooth as fuck ,with dividends of burnt roast and rich milk chocolate malts textures . I could drink this till I couldn’t remember my name.

Cask at The Hanging Bat. Pours black, thick, long-lasting tan head. Aromas of coffee and chocolate, light liquorice tang. Taste brings a light fruit sweetness, but mostly more chocolate. Rich and creamy mouthfeel. Really very nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. It pours a very dark brown body, clear-looking and with a small, dense, dark beige to light tan head. The aroma has some roasted malts and bonfire hints, with milk chocolate and a pleasant hoppy touch. It’s medium bodied and with a very soft carbonation level. Some licorice notes in the flavor, with roasted malts, bonfire and milk chocolate, and a nice hoppy bitterness in the back. Lasting roasted finish with piney and citrusy hops blending in. Sure a nice one, very tasteful and at the same time easy drinkable. 140816

Black with a tan head. Smells of deep roast, coffee and dark berries with chocolate. Medium roast with a dry berry finish. The smell is deeper than the taste. But nice nonetheless.
