Pours jet black with tan head. Aroma of burnt toast, coffee, dark chocolate and burnt caramel. Flavour is robust but smooth, real smooth. Nice rich texture and mouthfeel with a lingering bitter chocolate aftertaste.

BB 26 DEC 15. Poured an opaque black colour with a tan/dark brown foamy head that retained OK and laced OK. Aroma with low to moderate roasted grains, subtly of malt, a hint of vanilla and a hint of dark chocolate. Taste sweet with the roasted grain giving a slight nice bitterness; alcohol well hidden. Medium body. Very smooth with a slightly creamy mouthfeel and a very subtle bitterness on the finish. Nice.

Bottle has been updated since this picture was uploaded (as this is for the "Return" and the bottle is of the original Dread).
Dark smooth stout. Good mouthfeel, dark malts without being "burnt". Stays long .
Finished six pack in a week, bought another and did it again. Nice drop for winter.
