Cask at Churchill's in a snifter.
A: Dark brown with a minuscule head.
S: Espresso, espresso, espresso. You will find a big whole bean espresso aroma here, backed by a fierce roasted malt profile, but it's hard to get past the monstrous coffee profile, though it smells damn good. Some chocolate lingers in the background.
T: Huge espresso flavor as well, with roasted malt and a nice chocolate profile. The dominating coffee makes it a somewhat one note, but the backing chocolate adds some depth.
M: Lower full body with low carbonation. Mouthfeel is sticky and smooth with some astringency.
Overall: A RIS with a formidable coffee profile.
Serving type: cask
