4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle:   Nearly black, thin to moderate foamy beige head, nice lacing.   Assertive coffee nose.
A little cream and sugar.   Its like spicy coffee with a little vodka throw in on the backside.
Very smooth, some vanilla seems to be coming out as it warms.   This one was nice, soft bitterness, a little
bit of peppery spiciness seems to come out on the backside.   Moderate body, smooth mouthfeel.   I really
enjoy this big yet easy to drink stouts.   Lingering spiced and peppery like coffee on the finish.   Tasty!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz bottle acquired via trade on BA. Thanks, bro. Pours a thick and viscous opaque blackish hue. Dark, thicker with a frothy light brown head. A frothy ringer sits atop and laces ok. Aromas present some nice espresso jabs, coffee and cardamom. A bit of oak and roast, some toasty malts. Nutty malts and earth, some faint dark fruit with brandy and oak. Initial is fuller body, a bit sticky and full with some nice oak presence, a coolness with smoky and toasty malts, roast and espresso, coffee and some caramel. A bit of caramom, sweetness and roasty malts. A bit of toast, more cardamom and biscuits. Oak, some vanillin and warmth. A bit of brandy fruit cuts through that espresso and biscuity roast at times. The toasty carmelized elements are substantial with that coffee and espresso, cardamom elements tapering out. Some nice vanilla, lingering roast malts and touches of gentle Vienetta as we taper out. That oaky element never really gets going, some gentle dark fruit wafts. Tasty stuff. Not too full but flavorful and enveloping the palate. Firm nose, good pour, really nice flavors and flow.
