Bottle at the Beer, Bocce and Boozer tasting, London. Thanks Bruce! Pours black-brown with a cream, beige head. Boozy cocoa nose with some faint plastic, earth and roasted malts. Nice flavor, though, and potent. Medium roast with booze-soaked wood, scorched earth, burnt malts. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Warm finish, very woody, some burnt earth, a bit more booze, mild cocoa. Decent stuff.
