3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
18th September 2012: cask pint, hand-pulled in The Anchor, Birmingham.
Dark brown body: looks a bit like a ’Cappuccino’ complete with a light tanned froth on top (no dusting of mocca, etc though).
Smells a bit like a ’Cappucinno’, tastes like one too, or at least a Greek Frappé coffee.
Luckily I like coffee, but the name gives away the flavours you are going to encounter and I really enjoyed my pint.
Nice and certainly different to anything else I had during my pub-crawl around Brum that night.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at the Big Easy, London. Great cappucino aroma with some chocolate too. Similar in the taste but the flavour not quite as robust as the aroma would suggest. Still great, though.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Intense cappuccino, sweet coffee, chocolate, toasted malts, burnt molasses. Very dark brown, medium, creamy, beige head. Light bitter. Bitterness intensifies, bitter chocolate, milk chocolate at the same time, dark roast coffee, flat carbonation. Nice Stout, pretty amazing aroma full of cappuccino, but the palate can’t quite keep up. Cask at CASK Pub & Kitchen, Pimlico.
