The CASK version is pretty great and has a taste of pure coffee. It's much different and IMPO it's better than the regular version. This is actually my first time trying a beer from a cask and it was pretty great. The carbonation was a tad low (however, I understand that's expected) it was dark but not too bitter and the taste of coffee was fluent and constand. If you are in luck, try it from the cask.

On draft at Scotty's.

Pours very dark brown with red hues and a minimal mocha head.

Strong coffee in the aroma along with dark chocolate and good roasted malts. Was surprised by how good this smelled.

Flavor was pretty good right off the bat. Strong espresso and coffee flavors along with bitter chocolate. Somehow unlike most other porters/stouts, it got worse as it warmed. The espresso character faded with temperature and left a lightly flavor chocolate/roasted malt beer. Still pretty tasty, but not nearly as good as the first sip and not overly complex.

A little bit thin bodied, but not horrible. Appropriate carbonation.

Probably the best 3 Wisemen brew I've had, but still could've been better. Would definitely get it again, but I wish more of the coffee/espresso would've stuck around for the whole glass.
