3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at CP&K. It pours darkest brown with a small tan head. The nose is roasty, coffee, chocolate, earth, wood and a hint of smoke. The taste is mellow roast, milk chocolate, earthy, wood, coffee, light bitterness, treacle and cola with a dry, roasty finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Not really my thing, but it is pretty well-balanced.
