Keg at the Southampton Arms. Dark brown colour with a thick creamy golden head. Aroma is lots of pine hops, bit of citrus, orange and grapefruit. Also quite malty, roasty and creamy, bit of chocolate and a whiff of smoke. Texture is very smooth and quite thick. Taste is very roasty, chocolate milk, bit of spice and something burnt. Finish alternates between lingering bitterness and more roasty chocolate maltiness. Really nice. ansalon (4223) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - MAR 15, 2016

Keg in the Heaton Hop, Manchester. Pours deep brown, almost black with a cream head. Sweet pineapple aroma. The taste starts bitter with spice and lots of pine. Underlying coffee and chocolate. Delicious. RexTalionis (3825) - FINLAND - SEP 20, 2013
Draught at William K, Annankatu, Helsinki. Pours really dark brown in color with a creamy, slightly tan head. Pine, citrus and notes of coffee in aroma. Quite nice mix of these here. Roasted coffee notes in taste with some citric fruityness lingering beneath. Feels pretty dark, even if there is that fruity element present. Has even got a nice, slightly sweet chocolatey vibe towards the finish. Pretty nice one, even if it feels a bit too sweet from time to time. Leaves one with a quite roasted coffee bitterness in the end.
