Sampled on 12/02/2012
Dark brown (almost opaque) with medium creamy tan head which quickly subsides leaving moderate lacing.
Earthy, mushroom, dark chocolate malty nose with hops and bready yeast.
Heavily roasted, dark, complex and stout-like palate yet dry and bitter. It somehow contains treacle chocolate and caramel flavours without a hint of sweetness.
Lingering caramel with bitter chocolate and pine bitterness.
Closure: Crown cap
