Bottle from Ledger’s. Very dark brown pour with ruby edges and a large creamy tan head. Aromas of chocolate, treacle and roasted malt. Full bodied with creamy carbonation. Flavor is sweet, a little smokey, a little chocolate and perhaps treacle. It’s really quite tasty. Possibly a bit of sasparilla. Finishes with diminishing sweetness and increasing bitterness.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2011 Deep mahoney-black body. Lightly brown creamy head. Aroma of sweet coffee (coffee with a lot of sugar), strong malts, some honey - too cloyingly sweet. Lightly bitter, moderately sweet flavour. Bit complex (of roasted malts and fruits), but mainly sweet. Make it a tad less sweet and I am in.
