Bottle. A dark brown to black beer, topped by a finger thick beige head. The aroma is mostly on the roasted side, but there’s a nice whiff of smoke as well. Coffee, some dark chocolates and a touch of citrus peel. Roasted, lightly smoked flavor with coffee and a touch of milk chocolate. A nice bitterness chimes in, mostly of the hoppy kind, and there’s also a little touch of citrus peel. Lasting finish with some bonfire in addition to the flavors found initially. Tasteful and easy drinkable this one, nice. 140503

Dark brown color, small steady beige head. Milky, coffeish, toasted aroma. Medium-bodied. Toasted, lactic flavor. Some chocolate, quite low on bitterness. Aftertaste has nice dark milk chocolate flavor. Nice, a bit different Thornbridge maybe.
