mcberko (9224) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 28, 2015
On tap at The Black Sheep, pours a dark brown with a reddish tinge and a small beige head. Nose brings out English bready malt and a tiny touch of espresso. Flavour is along the same lines, with bready malt, toffee and light dry cocoa. Very English. Well-balanced and drinkable. Good stuff.

Ambro206 (272) - ITALY - MAR 23, 2015
Una birra scura e complessa. Si apre in bocca con un importante tostato poi evolve in cioccolato e leggero fruttato. Bella pienezza e finale lungo. La carbonazione è forse eccessiva e non lascia una bella sensazione.
