COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A powerful mix of multiple malts give this stout its intense black colour and heady aromas. Amazingly rich, upfront flavours give way to a mellow yet luscious finish, with bags of long lasting hop character. A beautiful beer to refresh your soul at the end of the day.

Essex (51) - Cardiff, - JAN 7, 2013
Poured from a 500ml bottle into a pint glass. Pours a dark black colour with a short lived white head. Smells very dark and burnt from the malts. Tastes similar, watery but a dark burnt malty taste, with a vague hop bitterness on the finish. Fairly messy too. Overall a decent quaffable, but slightly messy.

Bottle. Black with a medium head that quickly dissipate. Dry with traces of chocolate and coffee. A way above average stout that is pretty impressive.
