Very dark, motor oil with substantial head. Not too sweet but great flavor with vanilla and chocolate notes. Almost creamy and maybe a dessert beer.

Profound roasted chocolate malt aroma. Black bodied with a stiff finger tan colored head, Smooth roasted dark chocolate milk taste with a touch of vanilla to balance it out. Only faint glimpse of bitterness. Feels lightly carbonated Has a sort dry cocoa feel in the finish yet feels smooth and a tad sweet.

Pours black with a brownish head that stays a while. Moderate lacing. Nose is malty with notes of chocolate. Taste is balanced. Rich but there's a nice bite. Nice brew.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours opaque dark coffee brown with dramatic dark coffee brown head. Nice sweet roasted grain aroma. Flavor is slightly creamy, nice lightly sweet roasted grain, a little gingerbread, with a faintly darker, burnt toast finish. Palate is medium weight, with a durable finish. Overall, very nice. All the character of a good American stout with a little less weight.

As light and balanced a sweet stout as I’ve had. Really different for the category and extremely tasty. Enjoyed on tap.

Tried draft in philly. Simple an clean palate. Doesn't cling. Easy mouthfeel with little aftertaste. Chocolate and coffee notes strong but leave a little to be desired in depth. Head ok.
