Deep mahogany with a white with a beautiful lacy lasting head. Nice smell of hops, with deep malt and nice caramel. Some vanilla in the back. Nice rounded full mouthfeel. Tastes of sweet toffee at first and finishes with a slight roast bitter dry finish. There is a bit of astringent club soda in the aftertaste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home in London - picked up at Kris Wines. Pours clear, red-brown with a strong, lasting beige froth head. The aroma holds a bit of chalky cocoa, well toasted malts, some dry earth. Light to medium sweet flavor, lots of bittersweet cocoa, some almost-burnt brown bread, licks of robust coffee, earthy bitterness. Medium bodied with average, creamy carbonation. The texture is fairly oily. Finishes with lots more bittersweet cocoa, further earthy bitterness, burnt toast, dirt, charred malts. A pretty sturdy brown ale. Solid effort overall.
