teorn88 (2454) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 1, 2012 Keg at the Craft Beer Co. Pours a pitch black colour with a big brown head. Long lasting foam. Aroma is huge and bold: roasted malts, coffee, vanilla and cocoa beens. A hint of tartness as well. Taste is mostly sweet, with chocolate, coffee, roasted notes and vanilla, some tartness again and light hot spicy sensation from the chilli peppers. Bold body with good carbonation. Overall, extremaly enjoyable, flavourful and magnificent. All the ingredients are easily identified, no one prevails and they work perfectly together, amazing.

Scopey (7183) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2012
Tap at CBC, May 2012. It pours very dark brown, with a thick tan head. The nose is chocolate gateaux, roasted malt, coffee liqueur, cocoa powder, caramel and toffee. The taste is rich-roasted coffee, roasted malt, bitter chocolate, caramel, toffee, varnish, meatiness, charcoal, rich chocolate, spice and alcohol warmth. Full body, fine carbonation and luxurious mouth-feel. Great balance. Not normally my sort of thing, but thought this was very well done.
