Nice ruddy amber/brown hue with a decent finger of head. Head dies down a bit quickly but leaves a nice little white ring in its place.
Raisins and prunes hit me right away with a touch of roasty booze. Really fruity but highly aromatic.
Man, that's big flavor! Rich, malty mouthful of dark fruit with only the slightest bit of alcohol to note. Soft, lingering roasted finish with warming alcohol from below. Delicious.
Not all that thick for something with this malt bill and highly drinkable. Startling in its drinkability which, at 9.5%, is a terrifying prospect... Up there with the Black Lager as BBC's best offering. Good stuff.
Serving type: bottle

Pours a medium brown with caramel highlights and minimal cream head that dissipates to almost nothing.
Deep caramelization, melanoidins. Toasted, nutty malt.
Lots of kettle caramelization, slightly sweet melanoidin character. Enough toasted malt to counter the sweetness and nuttiness to finish things out. Slightly bitter finish. A touch of roast and dark cherries.
Body is fairly full with minimal carbonation and substantial alcohol warmth.
Nice melanoidin character, not cloyingly sweet, but a bit hot.
Serving type: on-tap
