Dark ruby, almost opaque color, tiny beige head. Intensive aroma of licorice, a bit sweet. Flavor is not as intensive, but it has dark malts, ash and licorice. Nice toasted aftertaste. Good one.

Cask gravity at Reading BF 09. Also known as No. 2 stout. One of the best beers of the first day. Black, big lasting tan head. Very roasty aroma. Very roasted overall. I liked it. Good fullness, lovely dark choc and I would happily recommend this to any Raterbeerian
