Tap. The Ghost is dark amber to brownish in color with a nice and smooth creamy head, that is tan and long lasting. In the nose the aroma is dominated by dark malts with notes coffee and dark chocolate as well as some berries in the back. The flavor stays this with roasty and coffee notes. The taste is not sweet but dry and get bitter in the end. The finish therefore is pleasantly bitter while the medium body and carbonation contain all these aspects in a consistent fashion.

rosenbergh (8564) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 20, 2014
From a cask at the O'Connell's, Tampere, Finland. Dark reddish brown colour with a foamy light tan head. A mild chocolatey malty aroma. The flavour is roasted malt, coffee, bitterness, hops and newspaper. Wow! Far from fresh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AshtonMcCobb (3935) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 23, 2014
On cask at the Haymarket. Appearance - opaque black but with some red to orange chinks. Nose - gentle liquorice and charcoal. Malt dryness. Taste - more liquorice and some small hint of black cherry. Palate - medium bodied with a dry texture and a long dry finish. Overall - great mild with a nod to the porter or dry stout style.
