Tap @ brewery. Dark brown with tan head and decent lacing. Smells very sweet and a little chocolaty with some dry roast. Flavor is a little funky- set them a touch sour then roasty. A tad disjointed but not unpleasant.

Tasted from growler at the late night tasting after the Grand Tasting at RBWG Asheville. Pours opaque dark brown with an average tan head that leaves average lace. The nose is some dark roasted coffee, and creamy dark chocolate. The flavor is a bit more vanilla, full of roasted coffee and dark chocolate bitterness. The body is full with average carbonation and a long vanilla and dry bitter finish.

12oz (or 10oz?) pour at the brewery. Very dark brown pour, with a nice tan head. Aroma was a wonderful vanilla, creamy, dark chocolate beer. Flavor was, well, a bit like a white Russian, at least as close you can get to a beer mimicking it without it being too much of a gimmick, because this is beer might sound like a gimmick, but it’s actually quite drinkable. Bitter chocolate notes, vanilla, milk creamy notes. Wonderful throughout.
