4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Keg at King William IV during Bunny Basher 2013 - London. Pours black-brown with a tight, lasting beige cream head. Big dark malt nose, good and roasty, with rich notes of dark chocolate. Big sweet flavor but not cloying, with moderately sweet dark chocolate, light ash, suggestions of dark fruits, toasted dark sugars, mellow bitterness. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Good condition. Lightly warming to finish with tons of rich, bitter dark chocolate, some hints of burnt wood, ash, faint earth, some milk chocolate and hints of coffee. Super drinkable and deep.

At the KWIV Brewpub. Opaque black - brown beer, little pale tan head. Light and mildly crisp palate. Creamy dark malt. Tangy coffee. Very subtle fruits and a touch of rum. Crispy semi dry finish with mild coffee. Better than when I had this at Brewdog - the coffee is much less bitter but the Rum is less as well.

Keg at Brewdog Shoreditch, London. It pours deep dark brown with a nice beige creamy head. Aroma is mostly espresso with some notes of vanilla. Taste is mildly bitter, some sweetness from the vanilla notes and the rum. Freshly crushed coffee beans. Silky mouthfeel with good carbonation. Very delicious beer.
