Bomber @ monthly tasting, Chez Sophie, Feb 18. Many thanks Simon. Pours black, large beige head. Nice full chocolate aroma, darkened malts, a little plummy. Full bodied, smooth with lots of chocolate, vanilla, dark malts, fairly sweet and verging on unctious and desert-like. Good, though heavy-going, end to the night.

Shrewsbury Beer Exchange Group meeting in Chez Sophie on 20th Feb 2018; last beer of the evening, an ideal night cap. Nearly fell asleep on the train home too! Black bodied, tanned crown. Roasted malty molasses in the nose with a side of nuts in dark chocolate. Light grape and spirit twist in the malty flavour, plenty of coffee, vanilla and chocolate too. Very pleasant, hides it's alcohol well, slick, smooth body feel. astanford (59) - California, USA - FEB 17, 2018
