Keg. Pours dark amber brick red brown with a medium thin tan head subsiding average to a thin rim. Scent is scentless maybe a bit of brown sugar. Taste is medium coffee and medium dense amber ale. Quite bitter but not without some brown sugar. Finish is smooth and a bit biting. Very great beer.

drjoeng (946) - SINGAPORE - AUG 30, 2016
6.3%ABV. Red ale. Poured out red brown. 23SRM. Nose is sweet and creamy. Caramel peanuts or praline pecans. Pecan pie is the aroma I was looking for. Mouthfeel is carbonated. Palate is mineral, salty and broad carbohdrate not not quite starchy, with dough and fresh baked barley loaves. Toast, deeply browned pie crust. Overall the palate comes across as slightly leathery. Hops are bitter and slightly medicinal. Clean bitter. Finish is medium. Lingering bitter. Goes on Favorites List !

ManVsBeer (8815) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2016
Keg @ Ninth Ward, Farringdon, London. Deep red with a thin off-white creamy head. Its a Black IPA with a dominant dark malt fruitiness, with some underlying roasted malts evident too. Crisp enough drinking despite its strength.

RichardGretton (4686) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2016
Bottle. Brownish beer with a very strong off white head. The aroma is yeasty with some roastedness, and the flavour is very dry and roasted with bags of bitterness. Overall a nice very bitter and dry beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
