UPDATED: JAN 19, 2016 Ever so slightly breakfast cereal, no quite a lot like a breakfast cereal straight-up. A nice burnt (but not overly-so) after taste.
Cask @ The Hanging Bat, Edinburgh. Quick re-rate much nicer and fuller in flavour in cask without being much different to the bottle, very nice.

On tap @ the Stockbridge Tap. Pours a lovely creamy opaque black with a creamy head but there’s a certain weightiness with this as you swirl it round the glass. The nose is chocolate as expected but with a real fruity thing too - probably oranges or raisins. The fruit n nut bar thing continues on the taste and the palate is very well balanced indeed - I can’t believe it’s only 4 or 5%. Overall, great beer.
