On cask at the Irish Craft Beer Festival, 2013.

Chocolate black with a creamy sepia head that lasts to the end.
Cocoa, coffee and ash on the nose.
Blackberry, chocolate, a roasty hit and branchy hops.
Carob and cherry stone finish and drying linger.
Smooth, medium, creamy and chewy.

Superbly balanced, deep and round. Smoothness from the oats comes through strongly. Deserving winner of the NHC Hombrew/annual Troublemaker competitions.
