3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask - Volo Cask Days 2010, Day 1. 20 IBUs. Deep reddish-brown, smallish light-brown frothy head. Smells like weak treacle and scorched oak, with something like sweet strawberry jam in the background - dry, too, Taste - loved it - soft, balanced, light coconut, hint of lactose, no alcohol or bitterness at all, just nutty and sweet roast; simple, but it hit my palate just right. Somewhat thin-bodied, lightly carbonated, a very silky and smooth finish (3+) - well done!!!

Cask at ’Volo Cask Days 2010’ . Pours black with a small lasting bubbly light-brown head. Nice aroma, malty along with chocolate, vanilla and a hint of coconut -- it is almost pie-like. Malty flavour along with some vanilla, chocolate and light hops in the finish. Average to medium bodied. Good stuff.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On cask at Volo Cask Days 2010. Pours a dark brown with small tan head. Aroma is sweet with mostly vanilla over roast. Flavour is roasted malt and a sweet sort of vanilla taste. A little on the watery side. Ok - it had been a year but it reminded me a lot of their PB&J from last years Cask Days.
