Cask Deep cola body. Nutty malt nose, mild roastiness. Medium-full body, chewy texture. Toffee and nutty malts on the body, lingering charred roastiness on finish with good bitterness. Nice dark, dry bitter.

Poured from bottle (500ml). Aroma of burnt toffee and raisin. Red mahogany, large bubbles in tan head. Roasted malt, cocoa, dried fruit, veggies and banana in flavor. Just a bit watery feel. Slight coffee-ish bitterness noticed about halfway through. Improves as it warms. Quite a nice beer.
