On cask @ the source for the Grand Pre during SDBW. Cocoa nibs and Vanilla beans.

A: Pours black with a lingering dark mocha head which leaves spotty lace.

N: Boozy notes with rich, dark chocolate and faint vanilla.

T: Prominent alcohol heat is surprising, perhaps from the cask. Some vanilla on warming and melds well with the cocoa.

M: Full body and moderate carbonation. Rich and very creamy with a smooth coating finish.

O: A bit too much boozy for me, but the mouthfeel was great. (490 characters)

Cask during SDBW at Alesmith, reviewed from notes.

A- Poured from a cask but really wouldn't know it from the apperance. Midnight black with a dark head with good retention. Thick, creamy ring deposits nice lacing.

S- Decent amount of vanilla and cocoa lend more of a dessert feel than the usual Speedway but the vanilla isn't quite as well done as other brews using it. Maybe a bit too much or the type of vanilla, not really sure. Reminds me of decadent muffins in a way. Roasty, cocoa Speedway base.

T- Cocoa and vanilla here too but not the best I have experienced in stouts, the vanilla isn't as smooth as say Aphrodite but the cocoa powder feel is on par with any great chocolate beer. Some dark fruit comes out and detracts from the great brew a bit.

MF- Low carbonation cask body. Thick oily feel as usual but the lower amount of bubbles hurts just a bit for me.

The cocoa is great but the vanilla falls a bit short for me. Still a brew I would recommend trying but comparing to other Speedways I have had it is not my favorite. (1,041 characters)
