2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Eccentric Cafe. Served in a 16oz imperial-like pint glass. Pour was completely black, head was white but not very substantial. Smells like oats and vanilla but very faint. Medium mouth feel with relatively low carbonation, and a bit tangy. Bitter oat-y taste with some malt and vanilla mixed in. Pretty low-key, nothing outstanding but solid and good. Finish is all vanilla.
