Bottle from madmitch76. Pours very dark brown with a small creamy tanned head.Very inviting sweet malty aroma, tons of chocolate and English liquorice, roasted malts and toffee. Smooth, silky mouthfeel, soft carbonated.Taste is loaded with chocolate, dark and thick, roast with some mellow whisky fitting in perfect, very well hidden alcohol, makes this one soo easy drinkable, it could be misunderstood to be a session beer, wrong...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Borefts. Lovely lacework on this. Really gluing itself to the glass with a dark ice cream brown head. This on top of a deep dark as good as black body. Struggling to call it anything other than black. The aroma is infused with chocolate and rocky smoke. Salty licorice and even a little bit of cold coffee. Nice not to overpowering this smokiness. More punch in the taste. Warming and a bit of a sting, The chocolate is intensified in the taste compared to the aroma. As is the smoky touches, but here it’s more of a beefy sweet kind of smokiness. Liqueur and coffee ends this one of. Kahlua perhaps? It’s actually quite good. 28.09.2013
