Bottled@Chriso pre-GBBF "Rock the roof down tasting". Very deep rubyish brown colour, close to black, with a small beige creamy head. Aroma is roasted malts, liquorice, wood, coffee, some bourbon as well as mild alcohol. Flavour is being quite much the same in a quite a nice balance. Also some mild vanillaish notes to it. Pleasantly balanced.
