Keg at North Bar, Leeds. Pours a brownish black, small brown head. Aroma is wonderful - chocolate, coffee, hop spice and plenty of bourbon and vanilla. Taste is similar, lovely roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, whack of bourbon, but the interplay with the beer is really nice - the bourbon’s not too overpowering, it’s just right. Long coffee bitterness to finish. Seriously good.
