Tasted April 23 2009. 500ml bottle, 4.5% Alc/Vol
So far the best of the Renaissance range. A rich mahogany colour with a dense espresso coloured head. Aromas of a coffee shop on a cool winter Sunday morning, roasted malt and scorched nuts. Quite robust on the palate with full round rich maltiness. Coffee bean and bitter/sweet chocolate and plenty of roasted character. A nice mild hop bitterness on the finish. A very nice beer.
