Pint on draught at the Crispin in Wokingham. Black with a short lived brown head. Very nice vanilla/chocolate/stout flavour. Roasted aftertaste. Its pretty good. The aroma is largely chocolate, quite mild.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask Conditioned Handpump Craft Beer Co London. A black beer with an off-white to beige coloured head. Full of vanilla in the nose, over and above anything else really although Iím a big fan of vanilla so thatís OK by me. Beautifully balanced in the mouth with the vanilla working with the roasty dark malts. Not over roasty, just a really tasty stout.

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2011 Cask at Craft Beer. Jet black in colour, vanilla very apparent perhaps dominating a little on nose and palate. It was very nice for a change but half would have been enough - a little sweet for me.

Cask at the Nags Head, Reading. Sooty black with a loose tan head; aroma of vanilla and chocolate malts; thin and milky consistency, sweet, with a natural vanilla flavour and some chocolate malts; then a dry, roasted malt finish. Even as I write this, some three hours after drinking it, I can still taste the vanilla!

Cask-conditioned at the Cask Pub and Kitchen 19/08/2011. Near black in colour with no head. Sweet caramel, vanilla and dark chocolate aroma. Flavour had some dark fruits, more chocolate and vanilla, which while prominent did not overpower. Finish was dryish. Fine.
