Pours deep dark red, almost black color with medium smooth foamy head. Aroma of toasted malts, chocolate, mild dark berries and cocoa. Flavour of chocolate, dark toasted malts, dark berry notes and hints of vanilla. Smooth creamy palate, a bit too watery though.
Cask at the new pub, dry hopped with Centennial. Pour black with a thick dark tan head. Big citrus nose with hints of chocolate and roasted grain. Medium malt body with lots chocolate, roasted grain and citrus hops in the taste. Very nice.

Draught @ Thirsty Bear Brewing Company, San Francisco. Rated on 13.10.2012.
Pours a black colour with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, tobacco and strong ash notes. Flavour is pretty similar; roasted malts, really strong tobacco notes, grassy hops and dark chocolate. Medium bodied, dry mouthfeel and a bitter finish where tobacco comes through even more than before. Good.
