On tap at the brewpub. Appearance: pitch oily black, thick mocha brown head. Aroma: Malty with underlying dark chocolate & espresso. Flavour: Very light mouthfeel initially, makes way to a rich chocolate, lots of espresso, smokey , in fact almost a fresh tobacco flavour, very rich and flavoursome, delicious spice and coffee finish. Quite lovely indeed.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at the brewery. Pours dark brown with a small beige head. Nose is bitter and chocolatey with a touch of meaty smoke which works nicely. As it warms liquorice comes through. Taste is more of the smoked malts and bittering chocolate. Aniseed adds a nice touch. Nice stuff. Kind of like a better Guinness
