enjoyed at the final match day of the Primera Division: Barcelona - Valladolid
Very dark chestnut with a small, fizzy, cola-like head. Aroma has lovely notes of coffee, roasted malts, dark chocolate. Quite crisp. Medium carbonation, lovely dry and lightish mouthfeel. Flavour is elegantly balanced, very dry. Lots of coffee, hard roasted malts, muscovado sugar, dark chocolate. Long lasting, dry and fairly bitter aftertaste with some flowery hoppiness. Very nice.

On tap at Urban Family Public House, pours a deep dark reddish brown with a small beige head. Aroma of sweet roasted malt and some bittersweet cocoa. Flavour is pretty subdued, with dry bitter cocoa, bready malts – pretty bland / flat, with no life / body. Whether this is the norm or not, I’m not sure. Disappointing stuff.
