Deep Mohogany beer. Small, creamy, khaki head. Excellent retention and weeping lacework.
Alcohol, copper, nickel, prune and dark chocolate in the aroma.
Strong coffee and cocoa flavors. Astringent, but well-balanced.
Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Short, dry finish. Way overpriced, but I'm a beer geek. I had to try it. faroeviking (11331) - Chupando chellas es como ellas, FAROE ISLANDS - SEP 9, 2008
Botella. Hazy deep red-brown colour with a medium fairly well lasting beige head. Good sweet malty aroma with dark fruits. Good mouthfeel. The flavour is sweet and yeasty with roasty mnalt and caramel along with dark fruits. alexsdad06 (11222) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - JUL 14, 2015
Ceramic bottle from old notes. Pours brown in color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma and flavor had roasted malts, a strong fruity character that showed some tartness and acidity, caramel, brown sugar, some earthy notes, interesting mix, but not my thing.

Thanks to beer handy for this. Pours deep ruby (it looks like non-filtered iced tea in the glass, but very ruby when viewed through a desk lamp). Aroma of malt, fruit, soil. Tastes very unique, with hints of malt, nuts, some plums and prunes, and a slight soy saucey finish. Not sweet, yet not dry. This one has such a unique flavor that I fear I can’t describe it accurately. I would drink this again. jercraigs (11071) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 14, 2003
Excellent fluffy head. Dark ruby colour. Flavour is malty with a bit of roasty bitterness, and a splash of caramel mixed in. Thanks for sharing Doug!

This black ale poured with a fluffy beige head and an herbal aroma. The flavor is smoked malt with a little bitterness. Not as rich as some of the better porters, but quite drinkable. leaparsons (10859) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2005
Bottle. Thanks to "Secret Santa" for this beer. Dark brown with red tints and a beige bubbly head. Aromas are sugar, molasses, berries, sour pear drops and caramel and chocolate malts. Quite herbal and floral. Flavours are molasses, brown sugar, chocolate, and fruit. Also, lots of medicinal herbal notes. Quite smooth on the palate. Pretty good.
