Masses of chocolate malt creates a full-bodied, palate-coating beer that is rich and smooth. Notes of chocolate, tobacco and espresso, it’s smoky, toasty and tasty!

mcberko (10568) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 29, 2015
On tap at JW Sweetman, pours a deep dark brown with a reddish tinge and a small tan head. Nose brings out powdery dry cocoa and toasted malt. Flavour is along the same lines, with toasted malt and a touch of powdery dry cocoa. Pleasant enough, but pretty boring and unexciting. Not bad but nothing overly interesting.

Beersiveknown (4408) - NORTHERN IRELAND - MAR 9, 2014
dark brown with ruby highlights and tan head. Too cold so little on the nose but starts to give up chocolate and red berries as it warms. Full bodied with modertate carbonation. Creamy chocolate, dry toast and red berries. Perhaps a bit thinner than some but plenty of flavour.
