Draught at The Brewery Bar, Camden Town Brewery on 19-Aug-2015. Black in colour with a thick tan coloured head. Medium body and carbonation. Aroma of roasted malt, dark fruits, chocolate and pine. Lots if flavour - dark fruits, toasted malt, caramel, cocoa and hops. A nice bittersweet finish. Nice fresh and flavourful ale. Scopey (15725) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2015
Keg at the brewery. It pours hazy deep brown with a thick tan head. The nose is earthy, rich roasts, toasted nuts, umami, dark chocolate and Rocky Road. The taste is smooth, bitter, earthy roast, coffee grounds, peppercorn, umami, salted liquorice, cocoa and some acidity with a dry, roast finish. Medium body and moderate, foamy carbonation. Good balance of flavours. A solid schwarz. Perhaps a bit dry, but enjoyable nonetheless. Theydon_Bois (20636) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2015
