A very smooth, dark beer. Strong malt taste but not too overbearing.

Almost black with ruby tinges. Billowing tan coloured head. Looks very appealing.
Not much hop presence in the aroma, more bready, biscuity malts. Aroma is subtle maybe too subtle.
Taste is Choclate, bit of burnt coffee. Maybe some toffee too. Slightly astringent. Carbonation is low leading to quiet a full bodied beer.
Overall very nice, would try again but not rave about it.
