jrallen34 (3483) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 30, 2011
18cl bottle poured into my Bruery tulip...Black pour with very little carbonation, not much lacing or much to look at...The aroma is too light can’t pull much out. However, I get some really nice vanilla and bourbon coming through, little too much alcohol. Light char as it warms on the finish, pretty interesting and yummy...The taste is pretty good and similar to the aroma, just not as successful. More alcohol comes through, and light vanilla. Not enough coffee or chocolate or bitterness to balance this out. Additionally, the feel is light and not as full as I want in a stout, affects my enjoyment of the taste.
