This beer was very good, but missed out on being a more full bodied experience.

Notes of dark chocolate, smooth malt and toffee. A little chalky in the mouth. A little too carbonated

this beer is a really murky black, with a tan head pours similar to the class v stout on draft with the exception that it has little floaties and appears more swampy

smell is sweet, sugar, vanilla, chocolate, roasted caramel and toffee getting ready to walk into a candy shop

taste is heavenly very strong toffee flavor, chocolate rushes over the palate with a vanilla finish, and then the chocolate comes back again very good

overall really nice cask beer
