3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This bottle I had was bottled almost exactly a year ago. It’s a pitch black color with a nice brown head that goes away quick. The aroma isn’t strong, but it smells like vanilla with hints of caramel. It’d 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. It’s pretty good but not AMAZING.

Bottle from Barleyshops in Congleton. Black with a light brown foamy head. This has a good nose on it, light roast with vanilla and acidity. Smooth and tasty. Vanilla notes, oak (what a surprise), malty. Pretty good, that a little to acid for me and not enough chocolate.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle in Baltimore. Brown pour, almost no head. Aroma is roasty, loads of caramel, vanilla, chocolate and some sugary malts. Flavor is quite smooth, slightly roasty, quite sweet and with a decent body. Somehow has all the ingredients for an epic stout, but isn’t it. Might be that the oak and vanilla seem a little forced on this one.

Draft at IAD. Pours very dark brown with a fizzy beige head. Tastes like sweet chocolate malt, roasted, molasses, and dry earth. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like chocolate, molasses, syrup, and roasted malt.

Got a ton of oak on this one. Otherwise, not much to speak of.. pretty bland. I felt like I was drinking a liquified version of an old bookcase.
