Cask at the brewpub. Pours a very dark brown with a spare lasting creamy beige head. Aroma of chocolate along with a hint of coffee. Flavour of chocolate first followed by some coffee, vanilla and a long, light bitter finish. Creamy (for cask) mouthfeel, average bodied. Great stuff, though I hardly would’ve known it was on cask. mabel (9246) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 16, 2010
[2791-20100226] Cask. Aroma has coffee notes and sweet chocolate and rich cocoa. Cloudy, dark brown black body with a medium-lasting creamy light tan head. Sweet mocha chocolate flavour is rich with a little hint of booze. Full body. Pleasant and fairly smooth.

The second in a series of weekly cask experiments. This one was refrigerated after the first week, and then brought back out. Black with a small bubbly head. The aroma, a nice dark chocolate. The taste, initial, and predominately chocolate, coffee is secondary. A standard mouthfeel, that is soft but a bit below average. Tasty, a pint is a lot to drink. garthicus (2925) - Dublin, IRELAND - FEB 27, 2010
On cask at the brewpub. Appearance: pitch black with a medium brown head.
Aroma: slight creamy chocolate, nice little hint of coffee. Malty too.
Flavour: malty initially with a big chocolate profile, coffee, cream and a lovely long bitter finish. Delicious. Strangely doesn’t taste like cask 17/20 jercraigs (10303) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 27, 2010
2010-02-27. Black body with a modest tan head. Aroma of mocha, lots of cocoa, and a chocolaty Ovaltine/tootsie roll/Hershey Syrup character. Flavour is similar but with less coffee character, the chocolate and cocoa characters are the most prominent, light bitterness throughout keeps it from becoming cloying. Average plus bodied palate is lighter than my preference for stouts but is pretty decent for a cask. Lightly carbonated. Enjoyable. Cask at the brewpub, Toronto
