On cask at Flying Saucers firkin friday, served in a shaker pint...

A- Pretty damn black, slight brown edges. Absolutely zero head or anything.

S- Cherries are there, but not in force. Roast hits before the fruit, but overall its slightly sweet and faint in aroma.

T/M- Well, not what I expected. Bland, dull, watery. What, did they put 1 cherry in the cask? Doesn't even resemble regular Onward, let alone the wonderful concoction it could be with cherries. I guess there is a slight cherry cough syrup flavor left over on the tongue that doesn't mix well with the minimal roast. On cask its much more medium bodied than regular Onward, but still its just bland and missing a lot.

O- Even for a cask this beer was dull. Just disappointing. Its a giant black hole in a glass; nothing is there... Yazoo- thank you for trying, but go balls to the walls next time, please!

Pours pitch black, no bubbles, no head. This is about the fourth pour. Brooding and lifeless.

Smell is somewhat empty. Dark malts. I thought I got a little cherries, but that could be my brain's power of suggestion over my nose.

Taste is a lot like regular Onward but without any cherries anything that makes Onward palatable. I have no idea why I thought a Dry Irish Stout in a cask would ever work. Take all of the creamy carbonation iconic to the style (especially if on nitro) and throw it in the trash, then add a weird light tart/sour that's either bad cherries or the beginnings of an infection reminiscent of the 8/2010 batch of Sue. Love that these guys are sticking their necks out a bit but this just did not work. Brett Favre IPA please.
