12oz poured to mug...
Pours a dark brown with a decent light tan head that made it's way up to about 1.5 fingers and was a nice tightly formed ring. Retention is a bit lacking with no apparent lacing. Quite a nice nose to the beer, notes of roasted malts, coffee, and a tad bit of bittersweet chocolate.
Good balance here. Clean initially followed by a syrupy malt, then strong roasted and caramal malts followed by a peppered hop and a sweet honey laced finish. Great mouthfeel, chewy and thick, yet sublime in terms of it's drinkability. One of my favorites from the BBC.
