Pouring produces a creamy large coffee coloured head that fades to leave behind the merest reminder, underneath that thin cap lies a hazy dark brown beer with reddish hue.
The intense aroma is an absolute joy with roasted caramel malts, sweet dark dried fruits (figs, prunes and raisins) all mixed with dark Rum.
Flavour is dark roasted malts upfront then brown sugar, rich fruits, liqourice (and leather?) before finishing with slightly bitter spices.
This is an absolute joy to drink and one i revisit whenever i see it on a menu.
