3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask-conditioned at the Wellington, Birmingham 12/08/08. This was recorded as 4.2% ABV in the pub, but every other source claims it is 4.5%. Opaque black with a moderate tan head. Bog aroma of coffee, liquorice and dark chocolate. Full mouth feel with plenty of bitter chocolate and roasted malt and a decent dry finish. Very enjoyable.
