4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2010 Draft, April Brews Day. Poured black with a small dense tan head. Rich roasty aroma of vanilla, chocolate, coffee. Very strong roasty flavor along with rich chocolate. Smooth and rich tasting, with big roasty notes of coffee, chocolate, slight smoke, and vanilla. I tried this as a float with Mallard vanilla ice cream and one of the espresso brownies being offered at the Boundary Bay booth... very sublime. I wish I could replicate that experience
