Taste is coffee dominated but lots of chocolate too with a hint of smoked roasted malt. Finish is semi sweet with a touch of bitterness and lingering smoke

Aroma:
Medium aroma of malts, caramel, dried fruit, liquorice, chocolate, roasted malts and coffee.

Appearance:
Opaque black beer with a slight/medium beige/brown head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel, dried fruit, liquorice and chocolate; ends slightly bitter with roasted malts and coffee.

Overall:
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. People should know that I always drink with my brother. We had a can each and we had a huge difference in flavour profile. One was sweet with dried fruit and liquorice, while the other had loads of roasted malts and coffee. Added together however, this beer is amazing. Deep and strong flavours with a lovely smooth and creamy palate.
