3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
"2 oz" pour at SAVOR’s Friday night session. Poured a near black color with a nice tan head. Aroma was cocoa, bitter chocolate, light vanilla bean character. Flavor was sweet chocolates, vanilla notes. Wonderful chocolate and vanilla notes come through on this one.

This has just a bit overwhelming in the vanilla for me. The aroma is a pretty even mix of vanilla and chocolate but the body was a bit vanilla heavy for me.

On tap at Shakespeare’s Grille. Pours opaque with a frothy tan head. Chocolate is very apparent in both taste and aroma. Had a pretty good body, but the vanilla wasn’t as noticeable to me. No dryness from black or roasted malts. An average stout worth a try.
