Dark brown in color with ruby edges. Some roast in the nose along with a trace of alcohol. The body is hearty and creamy. The roast profile is relatively mild but pleasantly present and the flavor includes a very slight kiss of sweetness underneath the roast.

Had this on draft in an English Pub ( Craft) Great blend of roasted malt , some sweetness and a nice finish of bitterness. Very mellow. The aroma had a hint of coffee.

Dark brown, almoust black with a beige head. A lot of lacing.

Nose: Roasted malt, molasses, coffee, chocolate and dark fruit.

Taste: Same as the nose, malt, roasted notes, coffee, dark chocolate and dried fruit.

Almoust no carbonation. Medium to full body. A light bitternss. Great beer!
