Bottle. Black with thin tan head. Faint chocolate aroma and a little fruity alcohol. Taste of coffee, chocolate, molasses, licorice and some alcohol. Quite smooth and well balanced but I was expecting something a bit more robust. jjsint (3436) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2014
Bottle originally from Bitter Virtue, Southampton. Black as any beer I’ve ever seen. Not a lot of carbonation and what there is dissipates quickly. Aroma of chocolate and pine resin. Wow, very hoppy for an imply stout and absolute heaven on the nose. Taste is sweet with a bitter finish, more hoppy - almost floral - flavours coming through along with the normal chocolate/coffee/liquorice flavours so common in strong stouts. This is a masterpiece. kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 11, 2013

Flavor has loads of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, booze, sweet malt, and a bit of dark fruits. Great for the cold weather. dfinney23 (3395) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 26, 2012

It is a bit rough around the edges, alcohol is pretty hot, finish is dicey. This is a middle of the road IS. Got it at Wegmans in Erie.
