Disappointing, some vague hoppy notes and toiday flavours but nothing is fully asserted and it doesn’t really work.

Deep brown, slick and oily in the mouth. Sweet malts, chocolate, sticky dried fruits. Soft carbonation and a barely perceptible hop bitterness. Good brown ale, a tad on the sticky side for me though.

KansaiBeerLvrs (3346) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 18, 2015
Bottle from oddbins London bridge. Served in a pint glass. Deep brown verging on black with an interesting nutty, floral hop, whoppers chocolate malt ball sweet in the aroma. Med-full bodied with a some scratchy carbonation. Chocolate syrup, hazelnut and dark chocolate in the taste. Probably the most flavorful brown ale I've ever had.  ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
