Really nice sweet balance here.
Loose thin line of tan head covering a dark rich oak brown/black with some indian red light at the base of the glass.
On the nose there light coffee elements, a light roastiness and a slight edge of earth at the end. There's a bit of soft fur cashmire mouthfeel as well.
Smooth, nice complexity and pretty comfy all around.

Poured from a 500mL bottle into a BrewDog cervoise glass. Best before October 2011.
A: A huge, tight head impressively crests the beer, gently churning, but never quite collapsing. A dark tan, it tops a much darker brown beer, completely opaque. Good lacing. With this creamy monster of a head, occasional bubbles, and a richly-coloured impenetrable beer, appearances don't get much better than this.
S: Chocolate and fruit. A slightly roasted character to the maltiness, akin to a porter, but slightly sweeter. Creamy.
T: Odd, but good. The head is a bit disappointing, airier than anticipated, and slightly clinical in taste. However, the main body of the beer is dark, with waxy milk chocolate and mere traces of canned fruit. The aftertaste is flat and sweet, with a disturbing hint of what I can only describe as "hospital smell." This seems to diminish with time, to the point that I now wonder if it was my imagination.
M: Not spectactulat, but nothing to gripe about. Slightly above average in weight and presence.
O: Another successful beer from Luckie Ales, if not one of my favourites. I'm devastated to be moving away from my source of this brewer's inventions. More or less recommended.
