[Bottle from Brewery] Deep brown with some ruby tinges and a dense moderate head which maintains a thin layer. Aroma of chocolate, treacle, molasses, fruity character, tobacco. Full, firm body, some sweetness, vinous character, a little alcohol comes through in the finish.

Pours opaque drak ruby with porous head that quicky dissapates to nothing bar a thin line round the edge of the glass. . No lacing to speak of. Big tarry, treacle nose with discernable alcohol. Mouthfeek is thin, but flavour builds. Reminds me strangely of vodka/coke. Alcohol is definitely present. Slightly smoky, definite chocolate and tar flavours but remains really ripe and fruity. Flavor lasts but quickly disintegrates with more tar and ashtrays to finish (but still a hint of something more fruity).

More black than tawny. Head falls quickly. Aroma of roasty coffee but dirty notes. Taste the same - very roasty but lots of dead yeast is not good.
