03/29/13 On tap & cask at Rattle n Hum, NYC.

I was fortunate enough to run into this in 2 versions, regular on tap & w/cocoa nibs on cask.

The cask version was more opaque with a darker richer color to the head. There was no lacing to speak of, but I don't find that unusually for cask versions. The cask had a more pronounced aroma & a much smoother taste & mouth feel. The coffee flavors were more apparent in the cask as well but I was surprised I didn't catch any chocolate.

The only aspect where the tap version stood out was in the bite of the finish. It wasn't too astringent but was definitely more apparent.

All in all, I'd come back to either but under 'druthers', I'd go cask. BTW this is not always the case in my book. Usually flavors survive better from casks but often, since they are higher maintenance, they can lose in the long run. In this instance, it is not the case. A real treat.
