[growler @ RBESG 2009, Grand Tasting]
Potent black malt bubblegum aroma with some peat smoke and scotch tape plus oaky vanilla. Oily black with a light brown cover and dots. Slightly salty, peat smoky flavour with vanilla, meaty, and roasty accents. Also oaky vanilla character. Moderate bitterness from black malt. Velvety feel, low carbonation, slightly bitter finish.
