Bottle from Oddbins.
Appearance - a touch lively on opening and some spillage. It settles to a very dark brown to black colour and there's a nice fluffy fawn head.
Nose - hazelnuts and light toffee. The chocolate comes through but there's a wee wild yeast note lurking.
Taste - milk chocolate and hazelnuts. Loads of Snickers on the finish.
Palate - medium bodied and creamy. Nice, long, rich but elegant finish.
Overall - the wild yeast edge was slightly off-putting and I don't think I've tasted this in its perfect condition. However, the malts come through brilliantly. SamVimes21 (567) - - JUL 19, 2017

33cl bottle. Dark red brown black. Thin brown head. Taste is medium bitter and light sweet. Dry medium body. Aroma and flavour is tobacco, toffee, chocolate, coffee. Even though it’s good, I think the beer suffered with the trip. Leighton (22328) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2017
