look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
A: pours with a nice dark tan head. Good lacing.
S: roast, musky citric hops, mellow milk chocolate/carob. Orange. Olives and prunes.
T: Full-on roast. Lot of depth to the roast on the palate. Strong bitterness and salty also (do they add salt or is that East Kent Goldings hopping or something?) Minerals.
M: It's damn thick and there's occasionally some residual sugar on the palate but it's undermined by massive roast bitterness and salt.
O: An indisputably high quality IS. Very, very rich.
Serving type: bottle
