Brown black with dense tan head. Aroma is roasty sugars, with a light treacle edge. Taste is the same, and very rich, and has just the right amount of sweetness to balance all the flavors, with coffee into the finish. #1999, first Dallas beer

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Pour is murky brown, with a modest , fine bubbled khaki head - sticky cobwebs on this one. The nose is molasses and caramel malts. Chocolate milk is there as well - The flavor profile is at first a little surprising - this one is heavy on the lactose and heavy on the vanilla - which means it starts off (too) sweet , and unfortunately fades to roasty oblivion at the end. The center gives you that malted milk balls, vanilla bean, caramel, bitter roast - and I can’t say I want more of this one.
