Enjoyed on tap at a local pub, served in a pint glass.
Pours an opaque brown with a medium tan head.
The aroma is loaded with chocolate with some coffee and a slight vanilla note as well.
The taste is fabulous. Vanilla, coffee and chocolate hit my tongue in that order. It's a very nice blend. A little bit sweet and really easy going down.
It has a medium and creamy feel and the carbonation is spot on, not distracting at all.
Overall, a fabulous brew!
