(Bottle): Pours a pitch black with a medium tan head. Big smokey, roasted malt aroma, chocolate, touch of espresso. Coffee, roasted malt, burnt and roasty notes, dark chocolate and a touch of vanilla in the taste. Really smooth to drink, a touch of bitterness on the finish. Fantastic, much better than anticipated.

Bottle from a farm shop in Castleford. Pours black with a frothy tan head. Nice liquorice and coffee aroma. The flavour is bitter and spicy with lots of liquorice, especially in the lingering finish. Full flavoured but lacking in body.

Bottle from Crafty Pint.
Appearance - opaque black with a thin crema head.
Nose - dark chocolate with a tangy sauce thing too.
Taste - more of the same same. Complex and interesting.
Palate - medium bodied with an oily texture and a dry salty finish.
Overall - I’ll say it again. Interesting and complex.
