Cask. Gravity dispense. Mule Bar, Winooski, VT. Nearly black. No head. Nose has savoury smoke. Charred wood. Grilled bacon fat. Some dark chocolate. Chocolate ice cream. Taste is chewy, chocolatey, tarry sweet. Lots of fatty bitterness (which has never been a real thing, probably). Slick, silky mouthfeel. Way too warm, mind you. Cask shouldn’t mean hot and bollocksed! Fruity, chocolatey bitter finish. Very nice.
