TheAlum (5687) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 1, 2014
Draft on tap at Goose Island Stout Fest 2014 (Chicago, IL). Pours a deep rich blackish hue, dark and opaque with good legs, some darker brown head that sticks around ok, laces ok. Aromas are rich vanilla bean, a bit of cocoa and a touch of roast. Some sweet caramel and toast. Initial is a bit thinner, with gentle spirit, lactose and some caramel. Touches of gentle roast, earth, ash. Touches of vanillin, gentle toasty and carmelized malt. A bit roasty and dry on the backend, a bit too thin overall, the barrel shows a touch of metallic character, sticky vanilla and toast. Finish is a bit dry, sticky and carmelized, lingering vanilla and toast. Solid. I prefer regular Hunter to be honest, the barrel seems to muddy this up a bit, the vanilla bean is pleasant but also seems to get lost at times.

on tap at Stoutfest ’14. this treatment worked better than coffee. ashy and oxidized aroma, some vanilla coming through. flavors are ashy and inky, vanilla is noted but underplayed, some chocolate.

Stoutfest 2014. Thick black pour with tan head. Light vanilla aroma and taste not that much barrel. Other hunters were better.

artmcd8 (1596) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 30, 2014
GI Stout Fest. Pours a dark brown with a medium brown head. Big vanilla aroma. Taste follows the aroma but with a hot bourbon kick to it. Vanilla may be a bit too much in this one. Medium thick body.
