3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at the brewpub on 2/3/08: Pours a nearly opaque black with dark mahogany hues and a small, creamy stringy-lacing light tan head. Aroma of sweet caramel candy vanilla and milk chocolate with a touch of roasty malts. Body starts fairly full with a nice dark malty sweetness and complex vanilla balance toward a smooth toasty caramel and dark chocolate finish. A nice stout.

Taste: Flavor akin to a vanilla cola with a bit of semi-sweet chocolate. Hint of roasty, earthy bitterness kicks in midway. Same till finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: It’s okay! A sweetish beer that leans towards being a lighter, more drinkable stout.
