Cask at Barvolo. Pours black with a half finger of tan head. Aroma has huge coffee, roast, dark chocolate, peanut shells, and caramel. Taste is balanced. Not as huge as the aroma but still nice. Medium roast, dark chocolate, coffee, milk chocolate, caramel, and toffee. Medium-full body with a soft, Cask carbonation. Creamy in the mouth with a dry finish. Overall just what I wanted. A nice roasty beer with chocolate, coffee, and caramel.

On tap at Volo. Beer for boobs. Gotta love that. The beer part of the aroma is good, the espresso part is just okay. I don’t remember why I wrote that. It tastes like chocolate milk. A little thin though. It finishes like a chocolate popsicle. Sweet, but it makes me nostalgiac for chocolate popsicles, so that’s okay.

Smells straight up like the espresso in the name. There is some malt mixed in there as well. A little taste of candy sweetness on the nose. Aftertaste has some sourness and a bit too much sweetness for me or id rate it higher on palate. Still a pretty interesting package.
