Cask at Churchkey. Balck pour with a bubbly off-white head. Nose and flavor are marked with the expected vanilla and agressive coffee notes, along with touches of earth and fruity malt. Quite nice.

Tap at Churchkey. Poured a dark, black color with relatively bubbly tan head. Aroma was roasted malts, heavy coffee notes and a decent amount of vanilla notes in this one. Flavor was smooth vanilla, with some bitter chocolate and coffee notes in there. Very enjoyable!
