High amounts of residual sugars and a fruity aroma makes this beer the perfect companion for chocolate desserts, if served lightly chilled. Brewed on Maris Otter ale malt, British Brown Malt, chocolate malt, roasted barley, two types of caramel malt and brown sugar.

wedgie9 (2638) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 6, 2012
Tasted on 8/21/11 from a capped 750mL bottle at Lush West Town. Pours a completely opaque, nearly black, oily dark brown with a thick light brown head that slowly recedes to a spot of lace with a decent collar that shows great retention. The nose is more coffee than anything else, but there are great notes of dark chocolate, a woody nuttiness, and other generally roasted aromas. The flavor is dry with the same woody and nutty note from the nose along with tons of coffee, dark chocolate, and general roasted notes. The body is medium plus with light carbonation and a super long roasted, coffee, and dark chocolate finish.
