Keg at The Bottle Shop, Bermondsey. Black with tan head. There is a winey, full, sweetness to this, vanilla ice cream notes, blackcurrants, quite flat in character. Big and full on the palate, quite oily, tarry, some bitterness. A big and unusual beer.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A pitch black, a very weak and dark brown head. Aroma is intensive and great. Coffee, vanilla, some sweetness of raisins and fruits, quite sweet. Taste is also a very powerful, salt liquirice, liquirice, roastiness, black coffee, some sweetness of berries. Full bodied, soy sauce thickness, not sticky, no carbonation. Warming notes in the throat. Very powerful and intensive flavours but still balanced. The great beer for the slow enjoyment.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2015/02/27 - Pours a jet black colour with a thin tan head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is amazing: chocolate, vanilla, smoke, marshmallow, mild tobacco and sweet booze. Taste is chocolate, vanilla, marshmallow, wood, mild smoke and a boozy finish. Mouthfeel is oily with low carbonation and a drying and mildly warming finish. Very surprised by how much I enjoyed this. Would love to savor this by a campfire!!

Black as night with no head. The aroma is intense roast malt and chocolate. Some coffee and earth as well. The flavor is intense too. Lots of the aroma comes through along with a kick of alcohol. Sip it by a fire.
