Cask at Assembly House, London. Pours clear brown with a light, tan cream head. Nose holds dirt and cocoa, some burnt leaves. Light sweet flavor, some bitter, charred malts, leafy bitterness, baking cocoa. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Earthy bitterness to finish with further notes of dirty cocoa.
