Review and Tasting

Sampled on 10/10/2016


(sample bottle BB 06/Mar/17) Hazy, deep mahogany brown with thin but retentive beige head.


Smoky bacon, brown sugar and caramel with coffee and chocolate.


Heavily toasted/slightly charred malt with hazelnut, slight liquorice sweetness, barbeque smoke and tar.


Bitter smoky bacon, brown bread, toasted nuts and charcoal.


"Smoked and brown" aptly describes this characterful dark ale with notes of smoky bacon, bread, nuts, charcoal, liquorice and mocha coffee.
