@The Thomas Drummond, Fleetwood. A lovely rich dark colour with a creamy white head. Smell is immediately of ground coffee. Taste is just like drinking strong coffee, but cold. A sweetness cuts the bitterness reminiscent of chocolate coated coffee beans. This is pretty much my perfect beer!

500ml bottle (Birofilia2014, Zywiec) (8-:4:7+:4:15=3.8)
Lovely roasted coffee and malts in the aroma, very well integrated if it is doped, and brilliantly engineered if it is just malts. Ditto the taste - refreshing even though it’s very full and roasty. Some milkiness too. Black, small tan head. Really good stuff.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at Cask PK. Black (or very dark ruby), tiny off-white head. Aroma - malty, burnt coffee bean, ash. Body is medium to light, low carbonation, a little foamy. Taste is difficult to pin down. Some sips were nice - rounded, musty ash, sweet coffee with a tangy astringent finish. Other sips were like eating some lemon that had been left too close to the garlic in the fridge. Overall, drinkable, a touch watery.

Cask at CBC Covent Garden. Pours a dark reddy brown. Aroma is toffee, plum, cherry medicine. Medium body, mild carbonation. Light treacle, light choc, a little lemon, cherry, dark fruit, lightly sticky. It's OK, a little metallic on the finish.
