@ Beerlovers bar. Bottle.
Great aroma with coffee and 'heavy chocolate'. Taste is coffee, roasted, a tad too burnt, a tad too bitter, still nice though. Nice carbonation. Burned aftertaste. ManVsBeer (10794) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2017
Keg @ Vocation & Co, Hebden Bridge. Black with a thin off-white head. Has stated roasted malts in both aroma and taste, also with a small grittiness. hawthorne00 (4029) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 9, 2017
Bottle. Deep brown with tan head that’s soon a coat. Aroma is roasty with molasses, coffee, plain chocolate, some licorice. Medium bodied, low carbonation. Tastes pretty much as it smells with moderate sweetness from the dark sugars soon being overtaken by form bitterness, letting the roasted flavours gradually grip. Maybe a little much licorice for me but very good and enticing: sets its stall out rather than comes at you. Borup (14945) - Albertslund, DENMARK - APR 27, 2017
