Don’t see too many dark bitters around in my parts and that’s a shame on the basis of this one. Although there’s a fine line between this a porter. A little on the sweet side in a marmalade, nutty malt in low carbonation, fairly light body but the main event is of course the roasted coffee and chocolate. Very good.
