SarkyNorthener (2141) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2013
Bottle, 9.9%. Very dark brown ale with a medium beige head that becomes a rim around the glass. Aroma is of chocolate and a touch of coffee. The taste is a touch of bitter hops, chocolate, some roasted coffee and dark berries. Medium to full bodied. Very nice but was hoping for something special, instead I got a very good Imperial Stout, so no complaints.
