Poured from a bottle, deep black in color, thin tan disappearing head. Notes of espresso and vanilla bean on the nose. Hints of coffee, vanilla, toasted malts and oats, and dark chocolate. Medium bodied very smooth mouth feel. Leaves the palate semi-dry. Super drinkable, always kept in rotation.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - big thick head, pitch black color, moderately roasty aroma and flavor, slight sweetness and creaminess, pretty good overall (and that coming from someone who is not the biggest stout fan)

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours walnut with a creamy mocha head; some splotchy lacing. Really enjoyed the aroma here - chocolate and roast highlighted by a sticky sweet vanilla. Taste is less complex - chocolate milk and roast. Medium body with a creamy mouthfeel. Very drinkable and tasty stout.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355 mL bottle. The right colour, but not much head. Unsweetened cocoa powder and espresso in the nose. Not quite what I expected, but Iím not complaining. The flavour is more what I expected, with the srtong notes from the nose dialed back, but still present. There is some sweetness, but certainly not a lot. Creamy body. Thin at the end.
