A bit watery for my liking.with soft coffee and dark fruits taste, and bitter after taste.didnt had much of the creamy sweetnes that I usually get in a good vanilla stout.the thin white head gone as well after few minutes, which didnt help for the appearance of the beer. lucky i orderd only half a pint.and consider i had it in the "craft beer co" so you cant blame the pub for the quality of the beer.

Cask at JDWs in Surbiton. Pleasant coffee notes and plenty of pleasant vanilla but I was expecting it to be a little more full bodied.
