4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
bottle from Dart’s Farm. Deep black colour, some beige froth. Compley nose of chocolate, caramel, roasted malts, cider and brandy. Very full-bodied, huge flavours going on: caramel, chocolate, brandy, cider, oak, and more caramel. Incredibly smooth on the palate with a lingering complex finish. A beer to savour slowly on a cold autumn evening. Sensational - should have bought more.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle bought in beer store in Cheddar. Thick, pitch black with small tight tan head. Crazy aroma. Chocolate-layered wood barrels. Bourbon-drenched black forest cake. Dark chocolate flour. Very soft creamy palate. Deceptively drinkable. At no point does it seem hot or heavy. Rich, compacted chocolate and bittersweet cocoa. Some orange zest. Finishes chocolatey with some wood astringency. Absolutely delightful.
