English: This stout looks like soft dookie and some will say it smells and tastes like it too. If you like a thick, creamy and utterly vanillalicious stout you’ll like this one. If you don’t, get yourself something else instead.

zach8270 (3961) - Henrietta, New York, USA - DEC 1, 2012
(bottle - 500 ml) Dark brown pour with a creamy looking tan head. Aroma is big with tons of flavors. Coffee, chocolate, malt and cream to name a few. Lots of chocolate and roasted malts in the beginning of the flavor. Very creamy body, possibly from oatmeal. A light vanilla and toffee sweetness comes up with the coffee bitterness at the end.

Aroma is best part of this brew - outstanding smell of chocolate, coffee, and malt. Pours nicely into snifter with moderate lingering head and ok lacing. Flavor is deceptive - no burn that you usually get with an imperial. Just good old stout taste.

Appearance :

Base: brown going into black.
Palate : medium full bodied, semi dry with lighter carbonation. Long finish.
Taste: as in aroma complex but also quiet rough. Mild vanilla, alcohol heat was tad too persistent/ Base was very well developed, clean with well presented chocolate walls.

Average beer for style. Aroma di cioccolato, tostature, caramel, soy sauce, a little bit of oak. Seems to be a barrel beer, Even if isn’t . Black like the night, with a frothy Small head, ha a flavour of some caramel, toasted cofee, licorice, some so sauces and oak flavours. Medium to full body, too fizzy for the style.
