Had this on cask at The Lanesplitter in Berkeley.

Pours a dark brownish black with a two-finger tan head that was foamy and very creamy and solid. Dissipated to a one-finger cap that retained for almost the life of the beer. Left spotty average lace.

Nose was of light roasted malt, some weak coffee and a slightly watery smell. Not the best nose, but I enjoyed the soft toasted aroma more than this description indicates.

Taste was a step up with nice bitter-sweet coffee notes and roasted malts. A tiny bit of chocolate to go with soft watery grain added some more to the flavors. It was good, but I have a feeling the cask effect helped it a great deal as well.

Mouthfeel was pretty solid, with a slightly watery feel getting canceled out by a creamy, frothy cask feel that was quite delicious and chewy. Bitterness was soft and nicely balanced with the sweetness present earlier. Drinkability was very good too as it went down easily and was pleasantly carbonated the whole way through. I enjoyed this even if it seems like I didn't.
