SlackerMads (1564) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2014
Tap. Thick black pour with a small creamy dark brown head. Cocoa, dark chocolate, burnt, light fruity calvados, sugar, wooden, tobacco. Full body, heavy sweet and bitter, creamy texture, soft carbonation. Works very well with the calvados, but I find it increasingly difficult to handle these thick sugary beers.
