330ml Bottle: BBD May 14, poured at home into a Gordons thistle shaped glass on 17th Nov 13.

I love dark beers in this glass: it shows off the colours and head so well and it didn't initially disappoint this time either. Very dark brown in body with a tanned head that sadly fell away a bit too swiftly for my liking.

The aroma was ground coffee and roasted nuts with a malty molasses semi-sweet hint.

Taste wise it was also leaning towards coffee, nuts and molasses: dark chocolate notes with raisins and vanilla also in the mix.

Smooth yet with a mildly bitter finish, this is a lovely sipping beer and shouldn't be rushed. I had some strong Cheddar, Celery Salt and plain Saltine biscuits with mine and they complimented each other beautifully.

Poured from a 330ml bottle into a pint glass. Sainsburys Great British Beer Hunt 2013.

Pours a dark brown/black colour, inky looking with a small head.

Smells dark and rich.

Tastes well balanced, with rich bitter and burnt malts, and smooth dark chocolate flavours. Slight hoppy bitter finish.

Overall I love this beer.
