UPDATED: MAR 21, 2015 Bottled @ The Magpie ,Brentford ; this smells nice to put it blunt and without pretence . classy fumes that spells out the word C O M P L E X in the air ... Boozy roast coffee -with some kinda raw barrel ageing texture and emphasis . . . motor oil lookin beer @ obviously ! Dranks grate . this palate showcases smooth toffee , coffee , chocolate , buttery notes , peppery booze ...all in an enticing texture ... rich and bitter boxing match that ends in a draw and unity .
