Pours dark red with a big reddish brown head which gradually fades to a ring. Fairly good lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and oats. Taste of roasted malt, bitter cocoa, some sweetness and a hint of vanilla. A bit grainy and a dry finish.

McWorta (797) - LUXEMBOURG - MAR 14, 2014
Black deep ruby brown red in colour with a medium light tan fading head. Noses of soy, chocolate light tobacco aromas and hints of vanilla and earthy leather notes. Slight fizz offering a watery slick texture. Rather full bodied with a light sweet medium bitter chocolate taste. The finish is leaving a bitter cocoa light soy note on the palate, lasting medium long.

Bottle at home from B&M Watford. Dark red chestnut brown colour with cream head. Aroma is initially choc, earthy and berry fruits. Later some mud / earth comes through in the nose. Flavour is rounded chocolate, some caramel and an earthy roast. Quite sweet caramel and coco. Medium full rounded body, Fairly sweet finish.

scotty (1072) - SCOTLAND - FEB 16, 2014
Bottle, B&M. Another surprise find in B&M, lovely dark colour, thin head but lasts well. Good fresh malty nose, not as complex as Iíd expected. Lovely, well balanced palate, smooth and malty but with lots going on in the background, the finish is long lasting. Lovely brew!

Bottle from B&M. Clear, very dark brown. Minimal, off white head. Rum and raisin chocolate. Hint of coffee. Taste is light sweet. Fruity dry. Smooth, light chocolate palate. Dry, light bitter finish. Pretty decent, especially at B&M prices.
