The brewery say:
An Imperial Stout brewed for the longest night of the year. Syrupy yet smooth, sweet yet strong. The best way to enjoy deepest winter and brood over the darkness in life.
Taste: Blackcurrants and rich sticky plums rise up on the tongue, followed by hints of jasmine and cola nut - a hint of carbonation cleanses the palate before the sensation of a layered toffee chocolate brownie and treacle finishes up.
Appearance: Deepest black with a light, brown oily head.
Nose: Rich decadent chocolate cake, sweet liquorice, fine kenyan coffee, and sticky jam dominate the nose, inviting you to journey deeper.
Malts: Pale malt, Munich malt, Special B, Crystal 300, Crystal 150, Crystal 200, Carafa type 2 special, Chocolate malt, Chocolate Rye, Oats
Hops: Magnum, Northern Brewer
