The_Osprey (6556) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2014
Bottle, Jan 2013. Pours black and initially forms a big tan head, but this doesn’t endure long. Aroma has smoke, leather, liquorice, whiskey, wet dog. Body is big and rich, slightly foamy, low carbonation. Taste is malty, smooth and light up front. Has a long finish with some molasses, smoke and a soft bitterness. Very smooth and drinkable. Good stuff.

Medium sweet flavor with dry, leathery dark fruits, baking cocoa, raisins, faint salt. Full bodied, oily, with fine carbonation. Warming finish with sticky dark sugars, burnt wood, rich dark fruits, dark chocolate, baking cocoa. Delicious. Great depth, very well balanced. Yes, wonderful beer.
