12 oz single bottle from Mollyís Spirits. Black appearance with a brown head that dissipates to a thin ring. Aroma of chocolate chip cookies, molasses, vanilla, espresso, light alcohol, nutty malts, light roast and a hint of banana. The flavor is similar, molasses, roasted malt, light coffee, earth, light vanilla and cocoa. Moderately bitter and mildly sweet with a lingering finish. Medium to full body. A nice beer overall, above average for the style. Pairing: Green Day - Dookie

Lovely black. Great semisweet stout. Spices whatnot. Coffee bean? Licorice? Elegantly roasted. Easily one of the best stouts Iíve had. Perfect after a great meal.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tootsie roll, cookies, vanilla in nose. Dark with tan head, thin head. Thin initial mouthfeel, a bit watery. Hefty anise taste, with a touch of chocolate at the back end. Sweet, with charred malt. The mouthfeel improves towards the end, thickening up.Small bubble effervescence is nice. Iím conflicted on this one.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, dark brown beer, fizzy bubbles like soda that crashed to nothing, no ring, no lace, nothing, looks like cola. Aroma is vanilla, coffee, faint metal. Taste is rootbeer, anise, vanilla, coffee. Kinda sweet, kinda soda pop like, but not as bad as the root-beers, still has a bit of hops, way at the finish. Is this a gateway imperial stout? This is getting a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Bottle as a birthday gift courtesy of Jill. Pours pitch black with a fairly thin beige head. The aroma is sweet molasses with a little liquorice. The taste is light peppery spice with black treacle and a hint of banana and vanilla. A touch thin, but tasty.
