Body: Close to light body. Slick and slightly creamy palate.
Mouth Feel: Good maltyness in a rather light body. Solidly roasted stole the show, very nutty. Sweetness is subdued, and booze is well hidden. Good caramel and burnt toffee. Rather low chocolate and coffee. Low-blow lemon hops to round. Pretty nice!
Hoppiness: Light grass in nose, Light lemon and light grass in taste. Bitterness is moderately low for an abrupt, low astringent roast-malty finish.

From M&S Brussels
Bière brune au corps cramoisi quasi sans col offrant un nez presque imperceptible: faibles senteurs de malts chocolat et caramel avec un houblon aromatique et aigrelet. En bouche, la gorgée, très soyeuse et douce, moyennement aqueuse, offre à l’attaque, des saveurs chocolatées, et se poursuit avec un forts gout caramélisé à la fin aigrelette, légèrement salé. Court en bouche, quasi sans longueur aromatique. Dommage cet arrière-gout métallique, en finale.
piana bardzo szybko opadajaca,zostawiajaca szczatkowy slad na sciankach i na powierzchni,kolor bardzo ciemnorubinowy wrecz wpadajacy w czern,zapach to palonosc,kawa;smak to tez palonosc,kawa,lekko kwaskowate,ogolnie bardzo przypominajace stouta niz portera,nie wybijajace sie ale za to bardzo pijalne piwo

Bottle from M&S. Pours mahogany with a cream head. Mild cocoa aroma. The flavour is light spice with a good chocolatey base. Decent. blackradioboy (220) - SCOTLAND - MAR 13, 2015
Colour more brown than black. Very pleasant beer. Doesn't have enormous depth, just enough. The more you you sip, the more you like. Reasonable afters. Good.

Bottle. Dark brown body with a thin beige head. Light lacing. Aroma of stewed tea, copper and sultanas. Flavour of lightly roasted malt, nuts and black cherry. Thin to medium body with a smooth texture. Lively fizz. Decent, although it tastes to me like a Bitter blended with a Porter. Beertobealive (576) - Courbevoie, FRANCE - FEB 22, 2015
