Draft. Poured a black color with an average frothy tan head that mostly lasted and produced excellent lacing. Moderate roasted dark malt and vanilla aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate long duration. This is the good brew.
