Bottle from Malting Pot. Near black, medium brown head. Aroma rasins, peper, mix of other spices, chestnuts. Taste goes from sweet, to bitter-sweet to medicinal bitter, coffee flavour present throughout. Quite complex overall, very nice ale.

Bottle from Bottle Shop- Druid St. Dark and smoky, near black with bubbly brown head. Aroma is campfire, taste is more stout-y, some chocolate. Warmth sneaks up and makes you glow. Once acclimated, this one rocks. Mishnok (377) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2017
From 500ml bottle. Pours dark, almost black with thin tan head. Rich, fruity aroma. Taste of raisins, prunes, a slight bitterness of coffee. One to be dipped and savoured

Bottle, 0.50l. Pours pitch black color with thick but quickly diminishing creamy brown head. Aroma of chocolate, capuccino, caramel, honey and nuts. Taste starts with moderate sweet and rich roasted malt, follows by licorice, coffee and chocolate, mouthfeel is warming, while finish is moderate bitter. Full body, creamy texture and average carbonation in palate. Awesome, although honey not tasted as much as felt in the aroma...

Bottle from Cornelius. Black body with a medium beige head. Faint lacing. Aroma of prunes, cherry and leather. Flavour of tobacco, black pepper, treacle and nuts. Medium to full body with a smooth, silky texture. Soft fizz. The alcohol is well hidden. A warming, complex beer. LazyPyro (1479) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2016
500ml bottle. Black with a large dark tan head. Aroma: complex, roasted malts, coffee, dark ripe fruits, chocolate, honey, nutty. Taste: like the aroma is rich and complex, so many flavours... roasted malts and dark ripe fruits, coffee, liquorice, sweetness from the honey, spice, bitterness is there though, and finishing with warming alcohol but considering the 10% ABV it’s not that strong. Smooth creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation, full body. What a treat this was, amazing flavours. lada66 (67) - Savonlinna, FINLAND - OCT 2, 2016
Great beer with so many flavours you can hardly imagine. Strong beer but you can’t taste alcohol at all. The beer that thrones your tasting.
