4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at the brewery. Pours nearly pitch black in color and topped by a small khaki colored head of foam that settles quickly to a thin film. The aroma is really nice showing both sweet milk chocolate and bitter dark chocolate, along with vanilla beans, espresso, and a hint of coconut. The flavor follows with more dark chocolate and fudge followed by the vanilla and espresso. Toasted coconut adds some depth and smoothness to the mouthfeel. There is just the right amount of bitterness to balance out all the sweetness. Full bodied and creamy in the mouthfeel with subtle carbonation leading to a chocolatey sweet finish. Very rich and decadent beer that is perfect for after dinner as a dessert. Awesome stuff. These guys are killing it.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
5oz draft @ Angry Chair.
Brune foncée, col café au lait.
Arôme est énorme au niveau du chocolat rappelant une mousse au chocolat, tout simplement sublime avec une subtile note rétro de douceur vanillée, on en oublie quais l’élément malté.
Palais est profond et intense à seulement 6% c’est fortement complexe rappelant un chocolate fudge. Léger houblonné au rétro. Caramel, chocolat noire persistant note grillée, petite touche vanille adouci le tout. Le pire étant de savoir que aucun exhausteur de goût n’est utilisé.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2/20/15. On tap at the brewery, RBWG. Tasty enough but I was disappointed. Not sure what the other RBWG folks were drinking... black pour, small tan head. Generic stout aroma, creamy, chocolate, coffee, bitter roasted malts, lacking coconut. Stout flavor, doesn’t particularly remind me of cake or cupcakes, light chocolate and roast, coffee, bitter roasted malts, a hint of coconut. Not bad, but was hoping or way more.

Keg at the brewery during RBWG 2015. Pours clear brown with a tan cream head. The nose holds roasted malts, chocolate and burnt grains. Medium to big sweet flavor, with some lightly syrupy chocolate, low bitterness, vanilla. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sweet finish with more sugary chocolate, dark bread. Tasty.
