3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Homer321, thank again man! I’d been wanting to try this beer for awhile. Finally able. Dark brown/almost black pour with a tan head. Roasted malt aromas with lots of coffee and subtle notes of vanilla. Flavor is malty with plenty of coffee but just a kiss of vanilla. Finishes boozy though. Not nearly as robust and well-balanced as I was hoping.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
This is an exceptional beer. One of the best coffee stouts/porters I've ever tasted.
Aroma is a big coffee nose with hints of vanilla and chocolate.
Excellent mouthfeel. Coats the mouth
Immediately hit with coffee and vanilla on tongue. This beer has one of the stronger coffee tastes of the coffee beers I've had. Really really awesome
Overall, this is an A+. I can't imagine what Oils make this beer any better.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle, 0.65 l -, at Kaisla, 20140911) The beer poured black. Its head was medium sized and lightly brown. Aroma had coffee, creaminess, vanilla, burnt malts and mildly fruitiness. Palate was full bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were coffee, vanilla, ash, sweetness, fruitiness and bitterness. Aftertaste had coffee, ash and bitter. A brew with very strong coffee presence. I felt there was even too much coffee and it disturbed balance.
