Pours deep, almost black with a small, creamy, beige head. Aroma is slightly smoky with roasted malts and good chocolate. Quite thin, but with a fine balance. Pleasant flavour, lightly smoky with a good dose of dark chocolate. Nice.

Brilliant of me to write it down just as "Wagtail", luckily others have rated it before me. Almost black body, coffee nose. Light creamy sweetish taste, malt and coffee. Ok enough.
