On nitro at the brewpub. One of the big nitro head pours, beige over cloudy dark brown. Dry ashy aroma with tobacco, roast, some smoke and some frutiness. Flavor is dark fruit, sweet plum, tobacco, nice. Medium to light, well carbonated body. Not bad. 7 3 6 3 13 = 3.2
-------- cask at the brewpub. clear brown with Clear brown with no head. A little bit more like mollasses, syrup, a little roast, nice. Flavor is similar to the aroma with a more sweeter red/purple fruit, nice. Light and watery with no carbonation, basically cask like. I prefer this one more than the original. 3 8 7 3 15 = 3.6
