Cask at Big Hunt. Great brown flavor with a good bit of alcohol. The cocoa makes it bitter but in the right way and the vanilla adds some sweetness.

Pitch Black, barely carbonated. Essentially a chocolate and vanilla bomb that manages to keep sweetness to a manageable level. Long lingering finish. Would serve as a great after dinner drink.
