On-tap at Brother Burger and the Marvellous Brew during Good Beer Week 2013.

Pours a deep brown-black colour, quite opaque, yet with a surprisingly light body. Head is an ecru bubbly ring that leaves some pretty solid lacing. It looks pretty good.

Nose is wholesome and oaty, with some speckled accents of star anise. Rich and bold, with a sharpness coming through more prominently than a smooth, richness. But that oaten wholesomeness really ties it together. It's lovely.

Smooth entry on the palate, with some anise and a seedy character. Sharp mid-palate as the roast character builds up. Some dark fruit notes also appear, stewed in a boozy hint. The finish has some smoothness just before the end: perhaps a slight uptilt of vanilla before the roast punctuates the finish.

Feel is lighter than I expected, but still pretty decent, and it works with some of the spicier characters which come through on the palate.

Overall, this is smooth, but with oomph. Plenty of flavour and plenty of interest. Yep, this is a very decent beer indeed.
