Fin (8704) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2009
Bottle that was very kindly left for me at The Chequers, Little Gransden by Hughie, cheers mate, consumed 06-10-09 Pours very dark brown in colour its a little murky, with a light beige head. Some coffee grains on the nose and a little bit of bitter cocoa. There is a nice combination between the cocoa, coffee, and also fruit. Touch of light cinnamon also, but chocolate, sweet fruits start to dominate. A nice slightly different Belgian beer. A7 A3 F7 P4 Ov14 3.5

A strong taste of malt and chocolate (mostly bitter chocolate), which gets a little bit bitter after a neutral start. The finish is long and malty. The carbonation is normal, the body is medium strong and creamy.
