Beer pours a dark brown body with a white head. Smell is of sweet roasted malt and a bit of nuttiness. The flavor is nice with a sweet chocolate, nut and a bit of faint weak coffee. Mouth feel is really smooth, and gives a slight tingle on the tip of the tongue.

The lads from Tadcaster usually do great things for me, but this one didn't quite hit the mark. Perhaps the bottle spent too long on the shelf, but while I did get a bit of nutty flavor from it, I tasted very little malt otherwise, nor much hops.

Clear brown with a four finger head that gradually receded to a half a finger. Not much on the nose that I could notice, nor on the taste for that matter aside from a little nuttiness. Medium bodied with light carbonation, silky. Overall, good, but not as great as I've come to expect from this brewery.
