The_Osprey (9935) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2018
Keg at Brewdog Clapham Junction as 18th Street Bitches' Bank, 12%. Pours an opaque black with a small ring of brown head, dotted lacing. Aroma is chocolate syrup, liqueur, vanilla, chocolate gateau. Pretty nice. Little vegetal note that I think has more to do with the lines here than the beer. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is again vegetal broccoli, spinach (wtf BD Clapham?) earthy chocolate, vanilla, little papery and woody. This BD doesn't serve its beers right IMO and you expect more at £18 a pint but it's a fun beer. (8-4-7-3-15=3.7)

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2018 200 ml draft at Mikkeller Bangkok. Appearance is dark opaque black with a bit of sticky tan froth which recedes quickly, but leaving lacing on glass. Aroma is dark chocolates, thick and oozing out ... followed by similar tastes and a mouthfeel like chewing on a dark chocolate lava cakes! Bittersweet chocs, a little coffee, lots of brandy booziness, dried dark fruit in the mix of smooth, oiliness in the mouth. Yummy!
