I've never seen a bitter this dark before and with a hint of ruby I was naturally eager to let my taste buds sample this little beauty. It doesn't have very much of a head but it retains its layer of foam and even attempts some lacing on the glass. The smell is predominantly malty with a slight hint of chocolate.
The taste is absolutely amazing! The chocolate taste is so subtle and coupled with the delicious malt makes for a very pleasant experience. Sometimes dark ales are quite hard going and spoiled by harsh flavours but this is so smooth it feels like velvet on my tongue. There is no bitter aftertaste at all and it's simply sublime. Ale definitely be Seeing this one Again and I look forward to it immensely.
