12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

Pours pitch black with a dark, thick, frothy head. Awesome head retention.

There is some black licorice in the aroma along with dark chocolate and toasted malt. Light notes of caramel are sprinkled throughout. A touch of grass in the background.

Some heavy dark fruit mixed with dark chocolate in the flavor. Caramel is much more prevalent here with a smoothe dark roast holding just the slightest bit of coffee notes. Moderate bitterness cleaning things up towards the finish.

Overall, a pretty good beer. I love the English touches although I must say I still prefer Samuel smith.

Pours black with a three finger light brown head. Smell is very sweet, slightly roasty. There is mild coffee flavor and heavy chocolate. The flavor follows the smell very closely. It has a nice, thick mouthfeel. As it warms up a fantastic smokey, tobacco flavor emerges.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance: Jet black, with a good head of tan foam and plenty of lacing.

Smell: Roasted malts, chocolate, tobacco.

Taste: Roasted malts, chocolate, hints of coffee and tobacco.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and very smooth, with malty bitterness in the finish.

The Verdict: Good stuff. Well balanced, complex, and smooth as silk. Not one of the best, but still very good.

Aromas of chocolate, coffee and something akin to tanned leather.
Smooth drinking with tons of bittersweet chocolate, coffee with cream with a nice bitterness on the end.
Tongue coating, lip smacking goodness!
Very tasty!
