3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask: Pours a black color with a loose brown head. This beer was cooler than most cask ales I’ve had. Aroma is of chocolate, sugar, and cream, perhaps also some vanilla. Body is on the thinner side of stouts, but still substantial enough. Has a kind of condensed milk flavor in a way. The chocolate character is very much on the light chocolate side of the spectrum. A plenty drinkable and enjoyable beer.
