Keg at Bat. Dark brown black, thin beige head. Definite soft fruity tea, soft dark chocolate, big liquorice, lightly herbal, soft pine perhaps. Lovely and inviting. Soft dark.chocolate malts, light tea again, soft roast, pine hops, very clean, lovely long chocolatey roast finish, and just a hint of tannin. Light-bodied palate, but amazing depth of flavour. Utterly superb. An imperial version please????

Tap at bat. Blackish with tan head. Roasty aroma, toasty with a distinct tea aroma. Similar taste with a slight fruitiness, a fine balance of tea and roasted malt. Medium bodied with a dry tea finish. Delish
