Black color, brown head. Sweet, chocolate, salty, alcohol scent. Thick, sweet, vinous, salty taste. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bitterness.
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2011 (Bottle) Pours black with a medium, brown head. The aroma is really roasted for a English Imp - tar, asphalt, black coffee and cocoa powder. The hop profile is also more notable then your average UK Imp. Still well balanced. The flavour is light sweet to dry, medium bitter and light to medium acidic. Coffee, cocoa and tar alongside a stable hop profile. The mouthfeel is fat, round and oily with light carbonation. Lingering, super roasted and citric hoppy finish. Full bodied. Simple, but fantastic. Theis (15151) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 28, 2011

330ml bottle from Beermerchants. Have you seen the waxy layer of coffee-coloured filth at the bottom of the bottle?? Bonus point. Ink pour with a moussey, manilla-coloured head. Aroma sweet, blackened, fruity...Neopolitan ice cream with fudge bits, bonfire, smouldering wood. Flavour pungent, deep and bittersweet; a spine of plummy, Struise-like red apple and nectarine buried by a charred, oozing morass of espresso dregs, soy sauce, tar, ashes, fudge. Fat and bulbous. A lick too much sugar. Afters cigar, black bean sauce, black chocolate, charcoal, burnt sugar. Leaves the tackiness of candy floss on the lips. Had a Black Albert the other night (my joint no.1 Earth beer, if the ratings are to be believed), but I enjoyed this more. World class- and nearly better.

Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours a thick and syrupy pitch black with a tiny brown head. Hard roast malt in the nose, almost tar-like. Very thick and solid body, extreme roastiness, almost charcoalish with loads of chocolate and a solid malt astringency in the finish. 200111 Fin (10974) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2010
