Bottle. Black oily pour, small brown head. Nice aroma of milk chocolate and salty licorice. Taste has a lot of salty ?drop?, almost silty. Little coffee in the finish. Too much licorice for my taste, I would have like more of the chocolate from the aroma.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 12C. Black with a coat of tan head. Roasty aroma with molasses, dark chocolate,dried figs, tar, some earthy mystery. Oily, almost flat. Sweetish dark sugars, bitter chocolate, dark berries/ light roasted coffee, kelp. Dry finish. Sweeter elements seem a bit cloying as it warms and although the finish is pretty dry makes it feel slightly disjointed. But plenty of intriguing things going on.
