Lovely rich tan brown, one finger light cream head that quickly disappears, leaving little lacing. Faint yeast and sweet, meaty smell. Gingery sweet overtones with light carbonation that lasts. Toasted chocolate flavor lingers. Smooth, great beer that holds up well on its own, and accompanying a pork stew.

Had on tap at the British Beer Company served in an Imperial pint glass.
Came to the table a solid dark brown/black color with a huge tan head that slowly dissipates to sticky lace. Smells of bitter roast, dark chocolate, chocolate syrup, caramel, and earth and minerals. The flavor mimics the aroma quite well with a heavy emphasis on the dark chocolate and chocolate syrup. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a creamy oily mouthfeel. I've had this quite a few times and I'm surprised I haven't rated it before now. I remember more chocolate from the bottle, but I could be mis-remembering. It is good I would drink it again.

Pours a one finger head black and tan. Head dies to a film.

Aromas of chocolate and roast malts, and a bit more chocolate, add on some cappuccino and cream.

Taste is light andrestrained - dominant chocolate - quite dark and bitter as it builds.

MF light as per ABV - a little over carbed and spritzy by end of bottle.

Overall good example of light ABV stout
