4.29/5 rDev +8.3%
Poured in english pint.
Clear deep brown beer with tan head, retention is ok. Cocoa smell, dry & nutty.
Taste is smooth, naturally balanced, honest and true. Chocolate, mild floral, specific to Williams beers. Soft carbonation, high drinkability. Am quite satisfied.

A 500ml bottle with a BB of Dec 2012. Cool label. It also mentions that this ale includes wheat, coriander and orange zest as well as the usual ingredients.
Poured into a Sam Smith's pint glass. A deep ruby-chestnut hue that appears black unless held to the light. Yields a decent head of frothy light brown foam that lasts for a minute or two before disappearing. Aroma of rich, chocolaty malt with notes of roasted grain, coffee, cocoa, mocha and hints of molasses and dried fruit. Slightly sweet. Fantabulous!
Tastes of rich roasted malt with a chocolaty character and a dry, bitter finish. Notes of roasted grain, cocoa, coffee, dried fruit, faint molasses, stewed hops and hints of spice. Subtle sweetness. Considerable bitterness upon swallowing - both hops and dark malt contribute. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy, with spritzy carbonation peppering the tongue. Body is a tad thin for the style. Rather astringent - dries the palate. Aftertaste of intense bitter coffee/roasted malt and hints of chocolate.
Excellent - superb flavour and character. An avalanche of roasted malt with significant chocolate and coffee notes. Nice mouthfeel; the only minor let down is the body, which could be fuller. Can't say I really distinguish the coriander or orange under all that malt, but it doesn't detract from the experience. For a stout that is just under 5% ABV, this may well be peerless. A must-try beer if you have the chance.
