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
