Cask @ Salopian. Pours deep dark brown, small beige head. Sweet aroma of vanilla, chocolate. Room temp seems to not affect this too much. Very smooth and creamy on the palate with a good vanilla / chocolate character. Nice.

Cask, shared with Finn at the Famous Royal Navy Volunteer. A patchy beige layer leaving spotty lacing down the glass. Near black in body appearance. Cocoa nose. Black malty flavours of cocoa and coffee on a backbone of subdued vanilla. Slightly roasted endnotes. Rounded on the swallow. Pleasant and not that sweet. (Bristol 29.04.2017).

A bit watery for my liking.with soft coffee and dark fruits taste, and bitter after taste.didn’t 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 didn’t 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 can’t 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.

UPDATED: NOV 24, 2016 [email protected] Pours black with beige head. Aroma has dark malt, roasted tones though some sweetness, tone of chocolate and vanilla notes. Taste is roasted malty with dark malts, dark chocolate, grainy notes and vanilla yet slightly grassy and a balanced sweet and dry finish.
