Extremely dark mahogany brown with a decent beige head.
Nose is coffee grinds, spice, light charr, tofeee, cocoa powder, fruit esters.
Taste comprises coffee, toffee, caramel, sweet stewed fruits, charr, roast.
Full body, fine carbonation, light peppery spice and a rising boost in the close.
Decent enough impy but not top draw.

Bottle from Bine &n Vine. Pours dark brown with a transient, fizzy tan head. Aroma is cinnamon over dark treacle with a hint of chili. Near full bodied. Flavor is dark treacle, chocolate, bourbon, cinnamon and warming chili. The alcohol is well hidden. It is very warming - both alcohol and chili I suspect. Strong flavors, not dry, but pretty interesting with a good flavor profile. Ratman197 (14674) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUN 18, 2016

Bottle care of Leighton. It pours darkest brown with a small tan head. The aroma is rich, bitter - sweet, big vanilla, toasted coconut, bourbon, cocoa, bounty bar and dried fruits. The taste is smooth, rich roasted malt, chilli spice, vanilla, bourbon, toasted coconut, dried fruit, unctuous, toffee, icing sugar with a rich, sweet, warming finish. Full body, fine carbonation and oily mouth - feel. A bit full - on and sweet, but overall decent. hopdog (12341) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 23, 2016
