330ml Bottle: BBD Mar 2014: poured into a Gordons Thistle shaped glass at home on 5 Oct 2013.

Really dark body, huge beige head.

Heavily roasted malt feel to this brew: almost burnt at times. Black coffee and dark chocolate with toffee notes in both the nose and taste. I love it when this brewery brews something like this (instead of their regular citrus tasting, golden beers), it shows they can produce flavoursome beers worthy of praise.

Most likely the best Salopian beer I've ever had: my taste buds however are vastly different to most peoples. Pouring it into a thistle shaped glass also enhanced it's appeal, to my eyes anyway.

The body is like black coffee
the head is a good inch thick and sticks

A confusing mix of notes for the nose, aspirin, wood bark, untreated liquorice root
and old fashioned washing powder

The roast sits their on the tongue way beyond its welcome
it doesn't allow the hops to good take over
the balance is wrong here
the taste is good but not right.

The mouthfeel redeems the slight irks
a good beer, not a great one.
