Poured a deep reddish brown with a beige head. Aroma of roast coffee and dark chocolate. Medium to full body, flavour is perhaps biased a bit too much in favour of the coffee, some sweet milky chocolate hidden in the background.

500ml bottle: BBE 05/15, poured into an Abbot ale glass tankard in 12/14. Proper dark brown body with a lasting tanned blanket of foam on top. Roasted, almost burnt malty nose and taste with a ground coffee trace, especially in the finish. Good body depth and a full feel to the texture, leaning towards creamy and oily slick in fact. Very pleasant indeed.

Cask @ Gallows Bird, Espoo. Aroma is mild with licorice and coffee. Also sweet syrupy tones. Flavour has coffee, licorice, some toffee, ash, hints of salt very mellow herbal tones. Smooth, pleasant and easy to drink. The saltiness & herbs become a bit unpleasant after some sips though.

Cask. Dark brown in color, tan bubbly head. Roasted malts, dark and fresh salty licorice in aroma. Salty licorice with lingering roastyness in taste. Smooth coffee vibes as well in finish with some hints of bitterness mixed with even more salty licorice and there’s that light burnt feeling as well present.

@The Thomas Drummond, Fleetwood. A lovely rich dark colour with a creamy white head. Smell is immediately of ground coffee. Taste is just like drinking strong coffee, but cold. A sweetness cuts the bitterness reminiscent of chocolate coated coffee beans. This is pretty much my perfect beer!
