Had on tap at the brewery. Great dark malt and hop aromas. Lovely combination of roasted malt bitterness and over the top hop bitterness. Very nice beer.

Quite enjoying this, hoppy with some roasted Malts on the nose. Hoppy, however is dominated by the chocolate and caramel taste, good stuff.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Drank from a taster sample. Pours Black with a compact head. Aromas of dark coffee and chocolate malt precede a strong hop aroma. The flavour profile displays a hearty malt backbone that compliments a serious dose of hops with vanilla highlights rounding out the palate.
