Flavours of bitters, roast, liquorice and liquorice wood, chocolate, hops, grapefruit, light coffee, hint of apricot, yeast, herbal and hop bitters and a hint of something flowers ish...
Aftertaste is bitter, floral, roast, herbal, light liquorice wood and floral coffee... Nice bitter.

This could easily be a stout. It’s different but it’s nice. But next time do as the lads of Brand do, add more hops! :-)
