A bit muted on the nose but with chocolate, coffee, toast coming through nicely on the palate. Mouthfeel is a bit light and finish is nice and dry but a bit short.

Cask at CBC Brixton. Pours a dark coca-cola colour with a red tinge and an off white head. Not much in the way of an aroma at all. Slight breadlines perhaps. Medium body, mild carbonation. Red fruits, a little milk choc and a mild citrus bitter finish. OK.
