IanGood09 Jun 2007 Fine, could have sunk a few of these.
AndrewExcellent28 Sep 2006 Ice cold, umm not sure that's a good thing but anyway... Slightly creamy and fizzy mouth feel. Loads of burnt sweetness with a slight milkyness to it. The finish was of sweeter malt with a tight burnt bitterness to it.
IanExceptional12 Aug 2006 When you have this when it's good, it's stunning. Bitter choc, good malts, but creamy and drinkable. Flavour is bitter choc and cream. Brilliant
