Cask Half Pint at White Horse Old Ale Festival 2012, Parsons Green, London in Nov 2015 - Opaque Black in colour. Average foamy beige brown head. Slight lacing. Very Malty; intense, dark chocolate, coffee, roasty (slightly burnt) malts, caramel, wood, vanilla and lactose. Fruity; orange, chocolate orange, some dark fruits. Bit Spicy. Hoppy; some balancing citrusy hop bitterness. Rich, smooth. Initially sweet chocolatey roast malty and fruity but increasingly bitter (and a little salty) into the finish. Good stuff. Very enjoyable.

(Bottle) Black colour with dense, pale brown head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of chocolate, cacao, vanilla, milky coffee, hints of tropical fruit and some wood. Malty, roasted taste with dark chocolate, cacao, vanilla, black coffee, liquorice, hints of cedar wood, and a balanced roasty bitterness in the finish. More than medium body, with a certain sweetness. Very well balanced with a generous chocolate character. Excellent!

W aromacie dużo kakao, kokosa, czekolady. Smak lekko słodki, czekoladowo kokosowy, bardzo dobre. Korcz (3388) - Warsaw, POLAND - DEC 11, 2016
Mocno przypomina ciasta w stylu jakiegoś murzynka. Kakao, cynamon, sporo paloności, dość wytrawny finisz. Świetne. wombat23 (2147) - Texas, USA - DEC 6, 2016

Pretty good beer. It does indeed smell and taste like chocolate cake. I don’t know where the Caribbean part comes from but it’s good stuff. Parmenion777 (382) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2016
