AshtonMcCobb (4899) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 22, 2014
On keg. Appearance - black with a red hue. Nice head. Nose - roast and dark chocolate. Struggling to find the vanilla. Taste - perhaps a faint vanilla note since I’m really searching for it. Again dark chocolate. Palate - medium bodied at most with a creamy texture and a dry finish. Overall - good beer but not great by Thornbridge standards.

Scopey (11525) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2014
Cask at the Euston Tap. It pours darkest brown with a medium beige head. The nose is soft roast, toast, sweet vanilla, cream and milk chocolate. The taste is roasted malt, toast, earth, peppery, cocoa, mild acidity and coffee, but not much vanilla. Dry-bitter finish. Good deal of bitterness about it. Medium body and fine carbonation. Solid.
