Appearance is a deep mahogany with garnet Ruby red clarity at the edges. A beige head settles and leaves great lacing. The first smell is of cherry sweetness and some smokey roast, with vanilla, caramel and oak. Delicious flavor with tons of complexity. Smoked wood, lingering oak, slight hop bitterness imparts some musty earth flavor. A bit of cherry, oak, caramel, toffee, and slight vanilla character. Medium bodied, medium low carbonation. The alcohol is slightly hidden but nice and warming. Overall this is one of the best winter warmers out there and the price point makes it affordable enough to knock back more than one without feeling guilty. Extremely complex and layered flavors. Highly recommended.

Unique brown-black color, nice malty aroma, relatively light body in a very dark beer.

On cask at my local Wetherspoons.

A: Dark ruby with a small but very good light beige head.
T: Roasty malts with an espresso smokiness. Nice little touch of sweetness but a fairly bitter finish. As it warms the chocolate comes through. Chocolate and grassiness in the finish.
O: Pretty good. Just wish this pub kept their beer in better nick.
