On tap at Craft Beer Co, Covent Garden on 31st May 2014. Impenetrably black with tan foam and travelling lace. Rich and intense roast malt aroma with spice and tart citrus. Exquisite in-mouth - rich roastiness and coffee meet grapefruit citrus tang and touches of smoke. Tangy citrus finish with burnt note and hints of firewood smoke. Engaging texture and fair body. Excellent! caesar (7400) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle from sourced market, large sample. Dark color, small brown head. Aroma of chocolate, cookie, biscuit, hint of roast. Medium sweet in taste, bit bitter. Just 5.6%, but so much flavor. This reminder me a bit of the kernel impy brown, which is one of my all time faves. Wow, great beer this one! Beese (3305) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2013
