Tasted by a pint at The Rutland, Chesterfield. Served by a hand pump w/ a sparkler.

A: nearly black in colour, with a light tan head that lasts very well.
S: gristy dark malts and soy-sauce both at presence upfront, while lightly roasted nuts, bitter chocolates, treacle, sticky dark fruits and raisins run underneath.
T: richly-flavoured yet smoothly-textured dark chocolates and roastiness fill the palate, leading towards mildly bitter-sweet malts, roasted walnuts, and an earthy+dried tea-leafy bitter aftertaste. Very dry finish with a lingering undertone of licorice and more hops!
M&D: med-bodied, silky-smooth in carbonation; the flavour is intense and rich, but not sticky in sweetness in any sense due to the healthy weight of bitterness on the balance. What makes this tasty stout even more lovely is the all important element of superbly dryish hops. Recommended!
