My 50th DC beer rate. Cask Black as you-know-what, brown edge head. Aroma of chocolate rootbeer float. Taste is extremely bitter and spiced old coffee, not a pleasant combination. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 17, 2012
Cask. Small beige head, clear red-black body. Aroma is moderately sweet, sarsparilla, chocolate liqueur, light roast. Taste is moderately sweet, milk/bittersweet chocolate, some roast, light sarsaparilla. Light-medium body, minimal carbonation, lightly sticky. Tasted side-by-side with the regular version -- definitely enjoyed this one more. radagast83 (8624) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - MAY 16, 2012
Cask at Churchkey for beer’s debut. Poured a lighter color than the base beer, but still was a relatively dark brown color. This time it had a wispy head. Aroma is serious on the sarsaparilla. Notes of chocolate, with a ton of sarsaparilla in the flavor. Mouthfeel was a bit creamy, with a touch of suds. This was a nice experiment. Enjoyed this one a lot.
