3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask; black, thin bubbly head; thick milk chocolate aroma - like cooking chocolate; tastes of two scoops of chocolate and vanilla ice cream that have been left alone in the sun to melt into one another; slight roasted character; an ok novelty half, but it’s not something I’d readily go for again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask at Bow. Black pour, frothy off-beige head. Rich chocolate milk, soft vanilla, touch of treacly marmite too. Slight sweet front, smooth roasty coffee followed by a big but still quite balanced roasty bitterness. Could do with more vanilla character, but overall very nice.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance of black coffee. Has a pleasant, warming vanilla aroma. Flavour is quite stale. The choc/cocoa and roasted malt bitterness is there but doesn’t go so well with the vanilla which is maybe a bit overpowering.
