50cl shared bottle at work, found in the fridge. Body is black, head is medium, beige, creamy, mostly lasting, good lacing. Nose is sourish, flavor is malt, mild, coffee, light chocolate, hint of herbs. Medium sweet, medium bitter. Finish is medium lasting roasty medium bitter, later cocoa and toffee stays bit longer. Medium body, dry texture, average carbonation. Easy dessert beer.

JKaranka (59) - Cardiff, WALES - JAN 5, 2016
Pours a very dark brown with ruby highlights. Smells of sweet malts and sugarcane. The flavour is mellow but picks up as it warms up (this beer is nicer and more complex around 12-15c). Mellow barley, some caramel, sugarcane and molasses. A note of caramelised sultanas in there. The flavours are there but are of moderate intensity. It’s medium-heavy bodied, not too thick, drinkable. Feels somewhat sweet but finishes bittersweet, with the bitterness lingering around as you drink.
