UPDATED: OCT 11, 2015 Cask at the WHOAF 2014. Pours oily black with a bubbly brown head. Dark fruits and burnt sugars on the nose. Medium to heavy sweet flavor, a little sickly, with char, strong sugar, grapes, wood, raisins. Full bodied with fine carbonation; chewy. Warm and very sweet to finish, sticky, bitter burnt wood, baking cocoa. So so. Hefty. (November 2014, score: 3.3)

StueyD (1581) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2014
A black beer with a latte coloured head. A potent aroma of burnt malt elements, nutty, chocolatey, espresso coffee, ripe red fruits and raisiny dried fruit. Rich and full mouthfeel. The taste continues in the same vein as the aroma, mouth-filling dark malt flavours, bitter chocolate, coffee, nutty, then the fruits come through to add a slightly smoother sweetness. The finish is long, lingering and has all the elements from the taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mit McTapps geteilt. Sehr speziell, da dick, krftig, irgendwie voller Kaffee, Malzen und gerstetem Gemse. Ich bin kein so groer Kaffeefreund und mit Rstungen habe ich dann und wann auch meiner Schwierigkeiten. Ganz ok, aber kein groes Kino.

Bottle from the Middle Farm Cider Center. The beer pours out in a deep black colour with steady low head and medium body. Aroma of torf, malt and coffee. Taste of malt, torf, barley, coffee, chocolate, woods and leaves. Earthy with a dry finish. Enjoyed it.
