GBBF. Cask. Clear dark brown beer. Softish and dry palate. Slightly odd flavour profile. Soft cocoa chocolate and a tiny streak of smoke. There is also a whiff of sulphur around the hops that detracts a fair bit. Finishes dry with more cocoa and some orangey hop.
On tap at GBBF ’11. Brown, with hardly any head. Smooth tasty and full - Porter-like. Very pleasant, soft, creamy choc, with a nice smell too. FatPhil (16102) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 21, 2011

Dark, and with a tight beige head - beautiful. Super chocolatey aroma, mellow rich roast. Ditto the taste. Very full and succulent palate. Chocolatey roast is delicious, the roast has no harsh aspects at all. Perfect strong mind.
Cask @ GBBF, 2011. Pours dark amber with a small head. Ashes, cold coffee and vague roast. Smooth and medium bodied.
