(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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask conditioned at The Craven Arms, Birmingham. Black with cream head. Oddly I seemed to start with a sweet dark chocolate in this beer and alcohol fruitiness, but from thereon the alcohol cleared the palate and a developing dry bitterness ensued until a final roasty, charcoal type flavour. Pretty decent.
