On cask for Churchill's Renaissance 2013 at Churchill's Pub & Grille in San Marcos, CA.

Pours an almost opaque super dark brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. A foamy curtain of lace coats the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, and mint leaves. Taste is much the same with a weird mouthwash flavor on the finish. There is a mild amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that seems unrefined, especially in the flavors.
