Cask handpull at The Bowl, Hastingleigh. Very dark brown beer with thin beige head. Aroma of smoke and chocolate. Very smokey in mouth, almost aggressively harsh smokiness that dominates the other flavours. Itís quite full on as a beer for flavour. Some choc comes through, not much coffee or hop. Just very harsh smoke throughout.
