Cask version at Winking Lizard’s 6th Annual Real Ale Fest (03/22/14): Brownish-black pour with a medium tan head that recedes steadily. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Roast malt, chocolate and vanilla in the nose. Medium-bodied with flavors of chocolate malt, coffee and oaky vanilla. The finish is roasty with a vanilla and subtle bourbon aftertaste. Pretty good overall.
