330 ml bottle. BB 23/08/14. Courtesy of VastActiv.
Black colour with a small tan head.
Roasted malt, coffee, bitterness, ash and mild milky sweetness in the aroma.
The flavour is very burned malt, ash, burned coffee and some hops. Too burned and too much coffee for me.

Bottle(@Kris Wines):Very, very deep brown coloured with a small and stable tanned head, moderate dry coffeish nose, completed by dried fruits, dark malt and a tinge of Worchester Sauce; robust dry bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied and astonishingly very soft; lingering sweet-bitter chocolatey and dark-fruity and roasty finish.
