Cacao, blackcurrants, vanilla. Some nice burnt smokey flavours. A little harsh for my liking. Complex. Descent but oxidised a bit.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
75cl bottle, shared with friends. Pours deep dark brown with medium beige frothy head. The aroma is so peculiar, definitely the smoke character could easily pass as some kind of tea. Taste is roasted malts and licorice. Bitterness and smoke on the palate, very balanced. Mouthfeel is medium, very good carbonation. So smooth and original.

Bottle from Cocktails, Littleborough. Practically black with a thin off-white head. Has light roasted malts with smoked aroma and flavour, although again this is quite light allowing a small sweetness to come through as well. Quite fizzy in the palate.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A lot of flavour given the ABV. Smokey chocolate and peat. A little thin but that makes it drinkable in size. Great stuff.
