Third of a pint from cask at GBBF. So good I had to get another and share it. Black with a big foamy tan head. Aroma is nice chocolatey, liquorice, neopolitan icecream. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is chocolate, soft malts, neopolitan icecream, a little buttery, finishes with an ashy bitterness. Really good. My first beer from this brewery and an excellent first impression.
