Stopped by the brewpub for a pint of this special cask chocolate stout on Valentines Day(before heading out with the woman). Did not know it was "related" to the XXXXX stout. But, you could tell. Black with big head. Light aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Incredibly creamy with good hop bite. Tasty. The biggest difference from the regulard XXXXX is the creaminess.
