"Burnt aroma of chocolate malt combined with smooth creamy flavours. Or you could just say 'Get it down your neck, it's all right that.'"

It certainly looks the part, dark with a thick creamy head, but has next to no aroma but does come with a subtle taste.

Very dark brown colour. The maltiness is more sweet than bitter. Only a light roast flavour. Pleasant but light on flavour.

From nitro tap. Pours dark brown with a deep amber glare and a creamy tan head. Aroma is roasted dark malty and smooth roasted. Mild bitterness lurking through the dense malt flavours. Dry yet no really bitter into the finish.
