Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub. Aromas of roast and chocolate. Opaque black with a nice bubbly mocha coloured head, and lacey. Tastes of chocolate and wheat with roast and spice. Smooth mouthfeel. Good drinkability.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at Cask Days 2012. Eighteenth beer of the fest. Pours a very dark brown with an average size long-lasting bubbly tan head. Aroma has lots of fruit and some chocolate -- the fruit and chocolate combo is quite lovely. The flavour, which has an almost harsh bitter finish to it, is a bit roasty and sweet -- not much initial flavour but a big finish. Average bodied. Pretty good.

2012-10-27. Very dark brown body, small frothy tan head. 3+ Modest aroma, leafy green hops, sort of fruity lightly yeasty touch.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a very dark brown with good-sized lacy tan head. Aroma is quite roasty wheat with a light hoppiness. Flavour basically follows although almost more smoky than roasty. Lightly carbonated. Pleasant.
