3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours black brown hues very bubbly head. Nose has a lot of vanilla, some nice malty goodness. Vanilla, sweet medium roast malt, wood, almost like the taste of cola. Body lighter than i expect from a stout, very easy to drink, good balance of vailla, not too much not to little.

Draught @ harryís Smokehouse, Arlington, VA. Pours cloudy very dark brown with small tan head. Clear aroma of malt, roast, and caramel. Sweetish flavour of caramel malt with a note of roasted beans and a subtle touch of dark chocolate. Sourish and slightly bitter finish. Nice.

Oaky and Vanilla nose. Roasty Malt foreground with minor hints of coffe and chocolate, not as much vanilla flavor as I ha anticipated. But still noticable. Slick mouthfeel. Kinda feel at only 6% it should be a Porter and not a stout. But still tastes pretty darn good no matter the name.

Deep woody sweet aroma. Toasted malt. Thin black appearance, medium off white head. Taste is dark chocolate, ash. Feel is thin and flat. Not bad, but something off here.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Deep walnut brown with lighter brown hue, corona of oatmeal colored foam around the meniscus. Aroma of sweet syrupy vanilla and cola. Low soft carbonation, average mouthfeel, pretty clean finish. Round, doughy vanilla, molasses and syrupy cola flavor like the nose, a little bitter licorice on the finish. Definite elements of a barrel aged stout without the ABV. One of these would be nice from time to time.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours pitch black. Aroma is sweet, caramel and sweet malts. Taste is molasses and dark stouty malt. Nice hop balance, just enough bitterness to make it a little refreshing. Itís a little light like other people were saying, itís not thick like a lot of stouts are but I kind of like that about it.... Itís good.

This bottle I had was bottled almost exactly a year ago. Itís a pitch black color with a nice brown head that goes away quick. The aroma isnít strong, but it smells like vanilla with hints of caramel. Itíd a lot smoother to drink than a normal stout which is a little weird. It tastes like vanilla and chocolate caramel(kinda) with of course the stouty flavor. Itís pretty good but not AMAZING.

Says stout on the bottle, tastes pretty slim to me.
Pretty decent brew but not enough in the mouth for a really good stout
Definitely got a little vanilla oaky ness there. but just needs something more to it
