500ml bottle. Almost completely opaque with a slight ruby tinge and a small, very dark head. Aroma of toast and coffee. Coffee flavours with a little smoke. Burnt caramel and plenty of malt. This has a real treacle sweetness which is tempered by a decent amount of bitterness, though the overall flavour may be just a touch too sweet.

On cask at Euston Tap, pours black with a small beige head. Nose brings out lactose and some cocoa. Flavour is well-balanced, with cocoa and lactose in good balance. Medium bodied and chocolatey. Solid milk stout.
