Keg at Glasgow Real Ale Festival. Aroma is strong coffee, well matched by the taste. Slightly watery, and taste quickly fades, which is disappointing

On tap at the Southern.
Appearance - opaque black with a decent head.
Nose - rich dark chocolate. Cream.

Cask. Bitter chocolate aroma. Flavour is sweeter than the aroma indicates and is not shy on the chocolate front. The initial sweetness is balanced nicely with a light bitter finish. Delicious.

Poured a reddish amber with a frothy tan head. Aroma of roast malt and dark, bitter chocolate. Smooth, watery body, flavour of milk chocolate and roast malt with a bitter/sweet finish. A bit unbalanced.
