"Pitch black with a rich, vanilla-edged nose, and hints of coffee and strawberry. The body is rich and intense, but with a relatively simple flavour profile, edging towards vanilla custard pastry. Some warmth and complex dried fruit towards the finish."

"Pours a viscous nut-brown with very little carbonation. The nose is intensely boozy and woody, but with a distinctly savoury character, almost like soy sauce. On the palate there's more booziness which leaves heat in its wake, as well as raisin notes. "

"Slightly hazy brown colour with thick foam. On the nose there are aromas of wood, vanilla and red fruit with a vinous, porter-like note. On the palate it is warming and spicy with oak up front and a soft, creamy fruit centre. The finish is long with assertive bitterness and nice tannins."

"Opaque black in colour with a nice tan head. The nose is boozy and caramel-sweet with dark toasted notes, coffee, tobacco, stewed plums and a touch of liquorice.

"Rich, dark brown in colour with a stick, stable coffee-coloured foam. An outstanding example of the style. Amazing aroma with coffee, roasted malts, tobacco, cherry and a bit of liquorice. Slightly sweet on the palate with initial dark chocolate that becomes more aromatic. The body is thick and creamy but not overwhelmingly so. The finish is long and luscious with more chocolate and warm spices."
