33cl bottle. Dark brown pour, unfiltered, with a lot of residues at the end of the pour. Tall beige head with medium retention. Visible carbonation. Smells of roasted malts, cocoa and dark chocolate - almost like a porter. Bitter and smoky taste, with notes of dark chocolate and wood smoke, as well as some resinous hops. Refreshing.

The colour is very dark brown-red, almost red. The liquid is clear. The finger thick head sinks quickly down to an off-white lid leaving no lacing.

The smell is bitter and dry with roasted malts. Hints of smoke, charcoal dark chocolate and black treacle.

The taste is roasted with clean bitterness. Some black-malt sour flavours. Lemon-lime, liquorice, passing sweet fruity flavours. Medium to full body. The aftertaste is smooth with some alcohol, citric peels, lemon-lime soda, citric peels and unripe plums. The finish is roasted/burned with harsh fruits.

The carbonation is strong, the small fresh bubbles are long-lived. The liquid is semi-smooth.

Yet another hoppy stout with a BIPA label. Well well well...
