Roast and some mocha. Black pour with decent head. Bitter finish. Nice package. Some decent hops like crickets. Can. Scopey (15919) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2017
Can at L42 - thanks to LKS. It pours darkest brown with a small beige head. The aroma is sweaty, sticky, toasted malt, burnt pin, greenness and charred wood. The taste is bitter - sweet, charred wood, coffee grounds, roasted malt, toasty grain, tar and liquoirce. Medium body and fine carbonation. Perhaps a bit raw. Not bad.
