Cask at The Derby Winter Ales Festival, Feb. 17, 2017. Dark brown , almost black. Medium beige head. Intense dark chocolate, vanilla and very mild burnt malts in the aroma. Oily texture, medium to heavy body. Intensely chocolaty start, with coffee and liquorice flowing suit. Turns from moderately smooth to rather bitter in the middle, coffee malts now dominating. Finish is sour sweet oxidized espresso, with the dark chocolate returning in the aftertaste. Most excellent! Borresteijn (7491) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 11, 2016
