Black color with mocha head. Aroma is really chocolaty, fudgy and sweet with some fruit notes. Taste starts sweet as well but not overly, just enough to make the chocolate and fruit notes shine more. Finish is more balanced by some dark chocolate and cacao flavors. Full bodied with smooth carbonation. A really tasty stout and I also like that it doesn’t have a huge ABV.

330 ml bottle. From England. HHOK19. Thanks to Jukka for this treat!
Black color with a tin bubbly tan head. Roasted malt, ashy dryness, plum and chocolate in the aroma. The flavor is roasted malt, dark fruits, mild berries and tobacco. Very tasty.

katrinaez (1256) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 10, 2016
Aroma has a thick sweetness and berry scent, and the sugar is tasted upfront. Nice balance in that the body is thin initially with the full thickness of the chocolate hitting you in the aftertaste. A bit boozy with bitter dark fruit also. Very delicious beer. Bottle.

Draft at Craft Beer Co, Covent Gardens. Dark brown color without much head or lace. Just a ring of brown. Dark chocolate and roast. Spice, earth, and wood. Sweetness, spice, and bitterness all present. Nicely made, well balanced, and full of flavor. Good beer.
