From the barrel at the Great Central Beer Festival. The find of the festival. Pours dark ruby lights. Tan top. Aroma richly chocolate coffee malts and a hint of vanilla. Taste is medium to strong sweet and bitter with the vanilla smoothness resisting any sour tendency. Full to medium body, soft to flat carbonation and a languorous finish.

Bottled, 500ml from Budgens in Broadway, Worcs. Very dark brown with off white head. Darkly roasted malts to the fore, there is a coffee extract character, a touch watery perhaps, some caramel.
