look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.25

Smell was carmel with hint of zest.
look was nice and pitch black with nice spiders with carmel brown strecks downt the glass.
tasted smooth with a bite of coco. unfortantly the feel was very c02. the carbonization just took away the second half of each drink. I have to say I ended up sipping down all of it with pleasure for the most part.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Served in a nonic pint glass at the Clybourn brewpub.

The Pre-Gold Box Excursion refuses to stop, heading for a nice stout from the cask engine. It pours a straight obsidian topped by a finger of light tan foam. The nose comprises sweet molasses, roasted malts, candied orange peel, dark chocolate, and a vague sense of mandarin orange syrup. The taste focuses on chocolate syrup and candied orange peel, with a hint of roasted malts, and a finish awash in coffee. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light carbonation and a consequently smooth feel. Overall, a nice stout regardless, though I think the cask-conditioning helps a bit in the mouthfeel department.

Serving type: cask
