4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330 ml bottle.
Pours a pitch black colour with a beige foamy head. Aroma of roasted malts, leather, biscuit and chocolate. Flavour is really rich with roasted malts, nuts, biscuit, strong bitterness, coal, pepper and ash. Mellow honey-like sweetness as well. Full bodied, thick mouthfeel and a long, rich, dry, warming, lingering bitter, tad sweet finish. Balance is as good as it gets. Great stuff!
