The "k" represents a "kept" beer & glad I did just that. The appearance is a beauty, w/ a frothy beige head & deep brown hue. Smells of chocolate nougat & overripe plums. True to the label description; it's a hoppy black ale. The blending of the dark malt w/ the English hops is the key to this beer. Really digging the aftertaste. Roasted bitter chocolate sweetness on the end....the best part, because it makes you come back for more. Love this series of historical recreations.

Poured from a bomber into a shaker pint, the beer is a dark, vibrant, slightly hazed, amber-brown coloring with a frothy, foamy, off-white head that starts around an inch, but quickly settles into a filmy coating. Aromas of rich toffee sweetness on a biscuit backbone, with hints of roast and old world fruit sweetness. Some raisin and fig on the nose in highlights. Flavors are roasty, also, with date, raisin, plum, and fig blending on the forward tongue. Boozy and earthy backbone, with a tangy, bitter hops presence at the end of the palate. The end of the beer becomes a bit unbalanced, leading to a bitter and astringent aftertaste, with a very dry finish. Started off promising, but this one started to spiral towards the end.
