Bottle shared in London - many thanks to Bruce. Pours oily black with a slight, frothy tan head. Lots of well roasted dark malts in the nose, dark fruits. Medium sweet flavor with very subtle smoked malts, burnt earth, touches of peat, sugary dark fruits. Full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Modest warmth on the finish, more dark cocoa, dark fruits, some leather, a bit of earthy bitterness. Not bad.
