hawthorne00 (2374) - Melbourne, - NOV 9, 2012
Bottle, 15C. Black with an inch of tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, roasted malt, prunes, vanilla. Velvety mouthfeel, but quite astringent - goes from very smooth to a little sharp at each sip. Taste has sweet mocha, dried fruits and vanilla. Earthy and tangy. Slight alcohol burn. Bitterness almost pops out at the end with astringent coffee and late-arriving dried orange peel. Deep and interesting, but doesn’t quite mesh as a whole. Might well come together on keeping, but very good now.

allmyvinyl (2924) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 28, 2014
Cask at the Hanging Bat. Dark red brown pour, thin, short-lived head. Rich aromas of spice and fruitcake, light booze bite, almonds maybe. Taste is sweet, nutty. Finishes sticky. Good.

Garrold (1140) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2014
Bottle, ages ago, from Beer Central, Sheffield. Clear, ruby red. Halo of tan head. Dried vine fruit. Light cocoa. Some bitter nuttiness. Taste is dry fruit sweet. Plenty of plummy dryness, too. Smooth, creamy soft palate. Finish is light dry, and light bitter. Very easy drinking.

oliodnb (260) - ITALY - JUL 13, 2014
66cl bottle. Very dark brown, almost black, with a creamy beige head that disappears quite fast. Smell is roasted malts, lignt coffee and some fruit sweetness as the beers warms up. Taste is a huge lot of coffee, chocolate and roasted malts. Milky sweetness and a very thick consistency really makes it like a liquid dessert. Some fruity notes again (peach, banana). Very light final roasted bitterness. Delicious!

alexsdad06 (5338) - Ohio, USA - JUN 30, 2014
Bottle sample from RBWG Grand Tasting notes. Pours a dark cola brown color with reddish highlights and a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, sweeter caramel, molasses, dark fruit, figs, raisins, some earthy character, not bad, smooth.

AgentAle (605) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 5, 2014
Aroma is mocha, deep chocolate and caramel. Taste is a rich malt sweetness with light roastiness and light smokiness. A dry bitterness is met at finish. Appearance is a black body with thin pearl head that retains fairly poorly.

Flat gorgeous black look, pours flat with sticky foam. Welcoming taste with lovely smell of dessert. Less treacly than expected. Good drink. From bottle in bar.
