This beer is a silky black colour and pours with appreciable carbonation resulting in a thick tan head. The cloudiness that may be evident is due to the presence of yeast, which is carried through the fermenting stage to finally produce the natural carbonation.

The aroma is a rich and complex one. The aroma initially is a strong roasted malt character with undertones of chocolate, nuts, black coffee and tobacco which then develops with age into that of raisins, smoked wood and liquorice. The mouth feel is soft and velvety with a lingering carbonation. The mid palate contains sweet chocolate notes with the hop imparting their natural hop flavour and the finish is dry with a medium after bitterness from both the hops and the roasted malt. 

This beer would be best suited to accompany foods such slow cooked meats which can contrast the beer’s bitterness, pork or beef dishes which match well with the beer’s dry finish or cheese which can either match or contrast the beer’s flavour and chocolate based desserts are well matched with Stout. Another classic match is with oysters, this match has existed for hundreds of years.
