    omg - it was far too drinkable. I thought my ris-ky business was a bit OTT but this is an extra notch up. It's starting to go into its licorice stage so they're all off to bed until xmas. Rich chocolatey stout but not super thick. A warming kick of alcohol with a roasted barley finish - a guy at work who converted from wine to beer says its the best beer he's every had and he's had a fair few Belgians.

    Disclaimer: he has uncannily the same tastes as I do :eek: apart perhaps from sours but i'm working on that :twisted:

    Happy to send a freebie over if you like. I only have 330's left which TBF is better for the 'ole liver.
