Cask. Dark brown with a medium sized beige head. Lots of treacle; brown sugar, molasses, but also some roasted malt, cocoa, light coffee, sweet licorice. Who knows, maybe some hops too. Medium body, soft and filling, sweetness nicely balanced by finishing bitterness. I guess this brew is a mood thing, but I like that it has lots of dark sugar and malt flavour without being too sweet. Would buy again.

AshtonMcCobb (5372) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 4, 2012
On tap at the Haymarket Bar. Pours opaque black with a proportionate head. The nose is smokey, sweet and milk chocolate, in fact it’s Crunchie Bar. The taste has treacle, smoke and cream. The palate is medium to large in both structure and texture. There is a lovely smooth, charcoal finish. Overall, a great beer.

Cask. Pours an appealing black with tan head. Chocolate, coffee and liquorice in both flavour and aroma. Nice creamy mouthfeel. A nice beer but more roast malt would be an improvement.

Trace of bubblegum ester. Minerals. Turns fairly bitter before the smooth finish. Mild malty bitter aftertaste. No real treacle. Decent.
