Chelmsford Winter Beer Festival in KEGS! Pretty much opaque dark brown beer, bubbly pale tan head. Palate is fairly smooth. Juicy dark malts, nice fruity note in good balance. Mellow unsweet dark chocolate. Finishes smooth with the dark chocolate bitterish in the aftertaste. Nice tangy fruits in this one.
