on cask at the brewery

Pours an inky, viscous blackness with a thick tuft of browned head resting on top. Nice retention, leaving patchy bursts of lacing left behind on the taster.

Rich, fragrant roasted coffee beans erupt from the nose, balanced by soft chocolate sweetness. Heavy malts and roasted hints with caramel, molasses and prevalent coffee. Soft boozy glow as well, but well-tempered.

Avalanche of coffee, nuts and chocolate land on the tongue upon first sip. Potent roasted coffee beans, but still remaining mild and pleasant. Semi-sweet chocolate notes with cocoa powder and caramel. Thick, bruising malt backbone with roasted notes and layers of rich flavor. Finishes with coffee and warmth.

Fuller body, milder carbonation, fluffy, creamy and silky on the tongue. I'm already a huge fan of the base beer, so having the opportunity to try this variation was really exciting.
