Another chance to catch on Half Acre while dropped in to Maria’s Community Bar. On draft, and on Monday’s it’s $5! Deal me in! Solid black of course, but with a thin, tan head. Smell starts with coffee and black licorice, which can be a little out of my comfort zone. Taste, though, is silky and oily at the same time. A lower bubble level helps bring in the impression of Kahlua with vanilla, as the anise on the nose is not found on the tongue. Still potent, but oddly not as forceful with the alcohol as the Chairman I just has was. Despite the potential for harsh roastiness, this beer is very very mellow. May not have all the bells and whistles as a Dark Lord, and you may still only be get bottles one day a year, but by George, you can find some on tap afterwards/

NikkTwist (2714) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 16, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2016 Draft at Bru Craft. Opaque black pour with soft camel foam that left slipping lace. Unexpected sweet shiny sugar candy taste up front. Beneath it are some inexact notes of coffee, chocolate and vanilla bean. Burnt marshmallows. Hints of blackberries and peat. 10% ABV is well hidden. Finishes smooth enough. Not your normal Stout.

Vestergaard (1696) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - MAY 20, 2016
On tap. Pours a pitch black with a thick, brown, long lasting head. Aroma is really sweet. Lots of hard candy, chocolate, milk chocolate, roast, marshmallows or lactose. Taste is super sugary sweet. Reminds me of the m&m's dragee surface. Light bitter roast, but just very sweet. Average carb and a full body ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Freebie tap. Pours black with a creamy brown head. Aroma of gummy bears. Hard candy, roasted malts, vanilla and sweet liquorice. The taste is sweet with notes of sweet liquorice, roasted ashy malts, bitter coffee and dark chocolate. Just a stout which is nice.
