(Notes of Aug. 07) Tasted by a half-pint, served by a sparkler pour.

A: very dark brown in colour with mahogany glows and low carbonation, topped with a creamy/frothy dark beige head with superb retention. Gorgeous.
S: a deep aroma of toffee (without the creamy edge, strangely), sweet roasted nuts and chocolate malts dominates the theme - pretty sweet and roast-malty like a dark Mild; dark dates and plenty of earthy English hops expand after a good swirl. Good quality hops!
T: the initial "ink-ish", muddy and smoky black malts' bitter-sweet roastiness gives way to a flow of lightly spicy and licorice-like herbal hop bitterness, leaving plentiful nutty elements with a sour kick in the finish, while the flowery hops offer something extra to enjoy in the very end. An incredible length & depth of roasted malts and bitterness prolongs the enojoyment.
M&D: really softly-carbonated and smooth, yet refreshing enough with a good texture of hoppiness at the same time. A cracking good and superbly quaffable Mild or light Stout this is, definitely one of the best of its kind I've luckily tasted.
