500ml bottle from BM Stores, courtesy from Mark Allender. Tasted this on the 25th December 2013. Pours thick dull black with a thick pale cream buff head. Strong sweet aroma of creamy Milky Way bar and fudge. Thick double cream mouthfeel which seems to get thicker as you finish. Poor lacing which rapidly vanishes. Dark complex malts give a rich sweet chocolate cake base infused with heavy chocolate truffle, treacle toffee and dark plum fruit. There is a strong grain element in the weak bitter aftertaste, with just a slight nod to hop resins as the oats & wheat intensify the thickness. The finish is solid malt as smooth dark Belgian chocolate combine with milky coffee, sweet molasses and damson fruit. This is a complex stout that is very heavy going and beats Youngers No3 in the mouthfeel catagory. One bottle is more than enough!

The aroma has some dried fruit, especially raisin. Also some wood. Flavour is quite sweet with some vinous, dry, wood too. Background hint of chocolately malt. Lacks roasty bitterness.

I love this beer, it is all I want deep black colour is matched by itís taste and smell. The head vanishes quick but thatís of little consequence. Bought a number of these from B&M hope they get some more in

rauchbier (3645) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2013
Bottle from Home Bargains, Scunthorpe. Jet black, thin but lasting off white head and good condition. Roasted coffee, some red berry notes and a low liquorice sweetness in the nose, full bodied in the mouth initially but quickly thinning and becoming dry, mostly bitter roasted notes and a gentle fruitiness although at the back there is a slight vanilla note and a suggestion of coconut, mostly roasted bitterness and a lingering berry fruitiness in the finish
