[cask at BotB2, Cask&Barrel Southside, Edinburgh] Black, with a beige head. Chocolate and mild, sweet coffee on the nose, some peanut maybe. Roasty – on the taste too – far more smooth and roasty than the other beer. Clearly, they missed the Black IPA brief with this one – it was creamy almost to the point of being an old milk stout. But styles count for nothing, I thought this beer was more interesting and had a fuller depth of flavour [02022012]

On cask at the Cask and Barrel- Southside. Pours a dark brown colour with an aroma of apple seeds, chocolate and coffee. Similar flavours with roasty malt also. Moderate carbonation. OK.
