wheresthepath (1619) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2010
[Gravity cask at the Back of Beyond, Reading] Black with a thin tan head. Coconut evident in the aroma but not in the flavour. Toasted malt and milk chocolate come through in the mouth, with a bitter, roasty follow-through in a very thick mouthfeel. Flavours not as strong as I expected, but it’s still a pleasing drink, and surprisingly easy-drinking. Banks do seem to do well with these guest brewers.

bobinlondon (1257) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2010
Hand pulled cask at many Wetherspoon pubs during their Spring 2010 festival. Almost black with a thick beige rocky head. Coffee and chocolate combine with the interesting addition of roasted coco nut to create a unique bitterness that is balanced by some smooth almost buttery coco nuttiness too. Excellent.

berkshirejohn (4677) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2010
Cask at the Monks Retreat (JDW), Reading. Black with a tawny hue and a tan head; earthy, woody aroma; oily texture and a strong woody flavour; with a dry finish. Interesting, but I wouldn’t really want a second helping of this.

RichardW (1550) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2010
Cask, Lloyds, Carlisle. As a definite non-coconut fan, I was not overly keen on trying this, however it turned out to be a chocolate and vanilla pleasure, with little to no coconut flavour discernible. Good tan head, sweet and smooth, deceptive and very easy-drinking. Could definitely have had more of this.

Cask at Fleur De Lys, JDW, Banbury, Oxon, 20-04-10 Pours almost black in colour with a cappucinno looking head. Loads of milk chocolate on the nose and then its noted in the mouth. Roasty and bitter some toasted macaroon is the closet I get to getting the coconut. Nice beer. A7 A4 F7 P4 Ov14 3.6
