Served on cask, Heath Hotel - Cardiff.

Pours a dark reddy-brown, verging on black colour, with a creamy white head.

You can smell the chocolate and coconut nicely.

Taste is rather lacking. Mostly cold and creamy, reminiscent of nitro-tap Guinness in body, temperature and flavour. Vague dark malts, water and that's about it.

Overall rather a let down after the previous craft brews.
