Cask at CBC Brixton. Pours very dark brown with a sticky beige head. Nose is big pine and milk chocolate with moderate roast and hints of tropical fruits in pineapple and mango. Taste is sweet tropical fruit forward with light cocoa, dry earthiness and some tang. Balanced very nicely. Probably lacking a touch in bitterness but goes down easy. Nice stuff
