Keg at CBC Clerkenwell during tap takeover. It pours a dark brown colour with a ring of brown bubbles. Sweet aroma of chocolate, cream, coffee, and dried fruits. Taste is chocolate, bitter coffee, roasted malts, and a nice bitter hop bite. Toffee and vanilla swirl from time to time with hints of caramel. Great one.

Pours pitch black with a tan head. Aroma has notes of roasted malt, licorice, chocolate, leather and alcohol. Taste is medium to heavy sweet and medium bitter with a long roasted, warm and licorice finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.
On tap at the Carlsbad brewpub. A black one, topped by a tan head. The aroma is intense, with salty licorice, molasses, roasted malts, hints of bonfire and coffee. Nicely bitter in the flavor, with the same found in the aroma. Full body, quite dry, with a pleasant carbonation level. Pretty nice this one. 130813
