Cask-conditioned, served by gravity at the Tewkesbury winter beers festival, 7/2/2014. Near black with next to no head. Dense malts, some dark chocolate and plenty of rast, before a dryish finish. No coconut evident, but good nonetheless.

Cask conditioned handpump Victoria Rugby 01/02/14. A pitch black coloured beer with a thick and creamy whitish head and lace. On the turn I reckon. Not getting any coconut at all. A bit of sweet and sour roast. Expected so much better from beer and pub.

Cask. Jet black with a slight brown tinge. Light tan heavy head with a couple of spots. Nose is chocolate and coconut. Quite light. Taste is light and smooth - giving chocolates and coconuts. Like a melted bounty bar in a glass. If this was a stout, it'd be brilliant but the finish fades a bit too swiftly for me. Still yummy and interesting. Mmmm.

Cask at the Euston tap. Dark brown pour with a lasting light cream head. Aroma is dark choc light roast and wood. Flavour is stale, metallic and blood with some wood and desecaded coconut. Finish is more mellow with caramel edges. Really nice smooth medium full bodied palate with light carbonation. Decent.
