On tap at the Ginger Man during their Hopfenstark event. Pours a deep black with a thin beige to tan head. Lightly sweet and floral, toast and roast, and wood. Smooth and sweet, fine carbonation, chocolate and toast and roast. Dark fruit. Chewy roast, chocolate and tannins. Lots of bitter cocoa, chocolate and char on the finish.

[3443-20101029] Cask. Very mild spicy leaf aroma. Hazy, dark brown black body with quick bubbles. Lots of mid-tone notes in the flavour, nothing comes out in particular. Full body. Not bad.

Cask at ’Volo Cask Days 2010’ . Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with a small diminishing bubbly tan head. Lovely hoppy & roasty aroma. Flavour of leafy green hops, lightly roasted dark malt and hints of coffee and nuts. Nice bitter finish. Medium to full bodied. Awesome!

Draft at GM with Andrew, Streets and Brendan. Pours a deep brown almost black body with thin brown lacing. Aroma is nice roasted malts and biscuity. Mouthfeel is great - some dryness, notes of great roast, bitter chocolate - and something sweet.

Cask - Volo Cask Days 2010, Day 3 (session 7) - my last rating from 2010 - another great year!! 85 IBUs. Black with a solid frothy and lasting tan head. VERY hoppy aroma, tart - deep roast but it’s mostly the citrus/resin bitterness that comes across ... hardly any alcohol for 7%. Taste is more sour, much less hoppy - good, but I expected more from that aroma. Average body, a bit astringent and acidic, longish dry bitter finish (sneaky bitterness) after up-front maltiness ..... I enjoyed drinking this one, but an incredible aroma on it.

3oz pour at Max’s. Pours a watery, translucent black with zero head. Toast, brown sugar nose, a little rubbery, some leafy veg. Flavor is really good, toast, chocolate, a little leafy veg, brown sugar, sweet malt. Medium bodied, dry finish.
