Cask at white horse meet the brewer event. ruity, vanilla ice-cream, chocolate and boozy nose with coffee, resinous hops and even more chocolate in the luxuriantly thick body. The oak adding extra vanilla and the dry hops rounding out the beer. This is exponentially better than the bottled version, and that is already a great beer.

sinkr (323) - Odenton, Maryland, USA - MAY 19, 2011
Cask->honker: Pours a quickly diminishing head atop a black body. Aroma of malt, heading towards chocolate. Body is full, moderately sweet, coating the palate with a milky sensation. Very good, but could be heavy. I think the cask lightens the load somewhat.

Cask at Churchkey- an exclusive Birch&Barley/ChurchKey version. The pour is near jet black with no head formation. No aroma. Taste is olives, sweat, salt, roast, tangy, tart, ashy cigarettes, pepper. Really disgusting.
