Had this on cask at draught house.
By chance ran in to kevin and nate from 512 brewery who were chillin outside. They were very interested in my thought on this beer.

Appearance - still creamy cascading head that infiltrates the darkness. Was a little less head but still very creamy.The color is still very very dark hardly no lights can get in.

The nose still gettin roasted coffee, chocolate, raisin, hops, and some pecan. Also on cask the hops in the nose seem to come out more.

Mouthfeel - I get a creaminess coffee up front with some smokey roasted chocolates going on. Then after that the hops come through quite abit with the pecans on the back end coming in. Still Very light though. Medium body which seems to be even thinner a bit on cask. The hop profile really comes through on the backend before the nutty hits you. Was a nice surprise.

Drinkability - Having this on cask was slighty different than the draught itself. Most notable is the hop profile that comes through

Still a damn fine beer.
