Damn well made beer. Wish the head stuck around a bit longer, but that’s nitpicking. Great notes of chocolate, no alcoholic heat. Great dessert beer pairing with rich foods. I chose a cheese and pear tart with slated caramel.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
650ml brown bottle. Opaque black pour with a low sitting skiff do dark brown head. Nice lacing left in the glass which I don’t always see for the style. Nose has chocolate/cocoa powder and notes of raisin/dark fruitiness and slight nutty note. Rich flavours of dark chocolate, roast, some mild smoky notes. Sharp roasty aftertaste with moderate bitterness, slightly woody, not much alcohol showing. Full bodied and mouth coating. Good impy , but kept wanting more smoke and more bitterness.
