500ml Bottle: BBD 31 Mar 15, poured into a Batemans badged UK pint sleeve on 15 Feb 14.

Darker and with more body and flavour than the standard XB this is an improvement in my opinion (and I like the normal XB).

Darker amber body with a fairly thin and weak white head.

Malty nose, with a mild hop aroma poking through.

The taste follows the smell, malts ruling the flavours with again the hops playing their part by giving the beer a bitter undertone and a dry finish.

Nice.
