Deep burnt malt taste with a very nice balance between the hops and malt. Pleasant but with some subtle flavours hidden within.

Draft. They even threw in a marshmallow very strange concept but it works. Pours a black body with a dark tan head. Malty and cordial like in terms of sweetness. Creme de caco, coco, mint chocolate notes. Coffee liquors, sweet dry stout with nice vanilla and whiskey notes. Delicious beers.

has an okay dark brown body and minimal head. almost no aroma. flavour is sweet barley with fruity notes - plum, prune it seems. just all right, and made a lot worse by the super rude waitress at the brewpub!
