Pours black with a nice head and good lacing on the glass.
The aroma is roasty & lightly sweet with a nice bit of licorice character and a mild leafy hoppiness. Some dark chocolate and very mild molasses character come through as it opens up.
The flavor is a great balance of roasty malt bitterness (almost burnt like character) and some sweeter chocolate, Cavendish, and licorice character. It's got a medium level of sweetness and a beautiful bitter backdrop. Balanced and very well constructed beer.
On tap at the source. Black with a thin tan cream subsiding. Scent is nearly scentless, light notes of dark fruit. Some coffee properties. Taste is quite dense and quite mild porter with resin and light on the coffee. This is an attempt to perfect a traditional beer style. Finish is a bit sticky. Some toffee and some unwanted sour back. Great. leaparsons (10797) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2017

(bottle, 33cl) Black coloured hue with a firm and light-brown mid-sized foamy head. Mildly roasted malty aroma with shades of dark chocolate, liquorice and accompanied by very present herbal, sprucey and fruity hops, making me think of a genuine Black IPA. Hoppy and roasty bitter flavour with a delicate sweetness, medium to full bodied with a well-carbonated mouthfeel. Earthy and mildly roasted malty taste with notes of chocolate, caramel, liquorice, as well as a good dash of sprucey, citric and spicy hops, lingering into the slightly leathery and tart finish. Well-done. 06.XI.17

Bottle at home. It was a good, but I have to say forgettable, stout. Lots of flavour, but it really didn't set my world on fire. Just personal taste. Wixie (674) - BELGIUM - OCT 22, 2017
