Bottle - pours jet black with so much foam that I had to wait to pour the rest in the glass. I did detect a a chocolate and smoke flavor but for the most part this brew just wasn’t all that appealing. The mouthfeel seemed really thin as well. Drinkable but it won’t be on my want list again.

Cask gravity at gbbf 2015 day 3. Thanks to Colin. But brown coloured pour with a lasting halo of white head. Aroma is vanilla, fruit cake, booze, sherry, cakey malts. Flavour is raisin and dried fruits. Oily. Palate is semi sweet, oily. Lowish carbonation. Interesting enough.
