Keg at the Torpedo Room. Pours deep brown with a thick, creamy tan head. Mellow nose, hints of smokey roast, faint cocoa. Light sweet flavor with faint toasted malts, cocoa, earth; rather bland. Light bodied with soft carbonation; as usual, the nitro serve has messed up the mouthfeel. Somewhat bland on the finish, just some burnt toast, slight earthy bitterness and weak cocoa. So so.

Keg at the Torpedo Room, Berkeley, 29/01/16.
Pitch black pour with a big old tan head with excellent retention qualities - a real looker of a beer.
Nose is thinnish, light paper, roasted notes, toffee, cocoa powder, raisens.
Taste comprises mellow dark fruits, light tar, chocolate sprinkle, light roast bitterness.
Medium bodied, soft, smooth, caressing on the throat, drying close with a little roast.
Looks and feels great but lacks direction at the business end.
