Cask at NERAX. Deep chocolate black pour with tan bubbles. Aroma is grassy, cocoa and roast. Bit of coffee too. Taste is initial malty chocolate and hay etc, followed by a complex roast and hop finish. Smooth and full bodied. Not as sublime as the name suggests, but a very nice and complex stout.

Bottle from Firma Bier, large sample. Dark color, medium frothy head. Aroma of roasted malts, bit laurel, slight licorice, blackcurrant, dark fruit. Feels really ’british’. Soft velvety mouthfeel, earthy hops. Malty bitterness in taste, laurel, roast. Quite dry. Good. Would love to see this from cask in a pub.
